How Chicago Could Get Its First Black Woman Mayor

African-American women voters in Chicago could flex their muscles at the ballot box later this month and help to make history by electing the city’s first Black woman mayor.

Dorothy Brown, who’s no longer in the race, endorsed Amara Enyia for Chicago mayor on Jan. 31, which was expected to help climb in the polls.

Enyia also has some star power behind her. She has received the support of Chance the Rapper and Kanye West, both from Chicago. Chance the Rapper announced that he planned to hold a concert for Enyia on Feb. 9, WGN-TV reported.

But crossing the line first in a crowded field of candidates could depend on getting the support of Black women voters.
