Successful Black Women: Brooklyn museum director running for key City Council seat


This successful black woman, Laurie Cumbo is running for City Council.   Cumbo has already been successful as the director for a very famous Brooklyn Museum.   The 37-year-old political candidate is the founder and director of the Museum of Contemporary African Diaspora (MoCADA). Not often do we hear of black women involved in the arts running for political office.  We want to encourage you not only to support Laurie Cumbo, if you reside in Brooklyn, NY, but to also become successful black women in politics, yourselves. 

As successful black women it is very important for us to realize we can make things better for many African Americans whom are still struggling to survive in society by making better laws within our cities.    Yes, we have a voice and we can approach legislatures for them to change the laws in our favor, but we can become more powerful when we take up seats as politicians, because we can make wise decisions.  This is a very positive thing for those of us whom are born again Christians, in a time when laws are negatively effecting the body of Christ.    

Many of us whom are entrepreneurs, physicians or attorneys may not have time to even think about becoming a lawmaker as a City Council, but-in the future it does not mean it is impossible for it to happen.   If you feel you can make a positive change within your town or city, we want to encourage you black women to run for City Council, even if you have not reached the level of financial success yet.  You may not be where you are in life, but you sure can do a lot to make your city better and much safer as a lawmaker.   Why don't you gain inspiration from Laurie Combo and give it some thought. In the meantime, we will be praying that Laurie Cumbo wins her seat, we are sure she is prepared to a great job as a lawmaker.
