I am amazed (and not amused) that we are STILL having African American firsts in 2010 and yet here we are. Meet Katie Washington, the first black valedictorian in Notre Dame's 161-year history. Ms. Washington tells msnbc she's shocked and surprised by the honor, and intends to go on to earn her M.D. and Ph.D.
Congratulations to Ms. Washington, looking forward to the day when it's not news but a regular expectation. Enjoy your Sunday.
