Unita Zelma Brown Blackwell – Mississippi Mondays June 1, 2020

For this week’s Mississippi Mondays post, I decided to check out Mayersville in Issaquena County. In doing the research, I came across Unita Zelma (Brown) Blackwell, the first African American female mayor elected in Mississippi. Here’s the article about her on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unita_Blackwell. She lived March 18, 1933 to May 13, 2019.
