On August 15, 1938, a legend was born.
Maxine Waters has been a leader in every sense of the word since she was elected to congress in 1990.
The California congresswoman represents the 43rd Congressional District and also served in the California assembly from 1978 until her win in 1990.
Here are some of Waters’ most epic moments as she continues carrying the torch for outspoken, smart, savvy Black women everywhere. She’s not just a politician but a woman who knows herself and continuously speaks truth to power. Happy birthday Maxine!
