Denise Majette

From dKosopedia

In 1972, Denise Majette was one of the first black women to attend Yale University. She continued her upward climb though Duke law school and years of working for Legal Aid in North Carolina. She moved to Georgia with her husband in 1983. In 1993, then-governor Zell Miller appointed her to the DeKalb County Court of Appeals. She left this job in 2002 to challenge Cynthia McKinney in the open primary. She defeated her, but resigned her seat in 2004 to run for retiring Zell Miller's Senate seat. She was defeated by former Republican Congressman Johnny Isakson.

In 2006, she won the Democratic nomination for State School Superintendent, see Georgia Executive Branch Elections, 2006.
