Black History Month: District Board Chair featured in Madison365
February is Black History Month.
In its honor, Madison365 is running a special series featuring Black leaders in Wisconsin. One of them is Madison College District Board Chair Frances Huntley-Cooper.
Huntley-Cooper was elected Fitchburg's mayor in 1991, becoming the first Black person in Wisconsin to hold that position in any city. To this day, she remains the only Black mayor in Wisconsin history.
