Barbara Jordan “I Dared To Be Me”

April 15, 2018 | 3:00pm – 6:00pm

Born on February 21, 1936, in Houston, Texas, Barbara Jordan was a lawyer, educator and politician. She was the first African-American woman to be elected to the Texas State Senate (1966) and the “first” African American from Texas to serve in the United States House of Representatives, from 1972 to 1978.  As President “Pro Temp” Jordan was called upon to be the acting governor of Texas for a day. By becoming governor for a day Jordan becomes the “first” African American woman governor in the history of the United States. She captured the attention of President Lyndon Johnson, who invited her to the White House for a preview of his 1967 civil rights message.

Barbara Jordan emerged as an eloquent and powerful interpreter of the Watergate impeachment investigation at a time when many Americans despaired about the Constitution and the country. Jordan lent added weight to her message by her very presence on the House Judiciary Committee. She was the keynote speaker during the impeachment process of Richard Nixon.
