No Blacks In U.S. Senate

In the 233 years that the U.S. Senate has existed, there have only been 11 senators who are Black.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom's decision against picking a Black woman to fill Kamala Harris' U.S. Senate seat has set off a political firestorm on social media.

Despite record election achievements by African-Americans in the House, the United States Senate will not have an African-American in its ranks.
