Costa Rica Just Elected A Black Female Vice President of Jamaican Descent

Epsy Campbell Barr made history Sunday night when she was elected as Costa Rica’s first Black female vice president following a landslide victory over her running mate, Carlos Alvarado. The win makes Campbell Barr the first Black woman to hold the office in all of the Americas.

An economist by profession, Campbell Barr said she feels a responsibility not only to her nation’s citizens of color, but to people of African descent throughout Latin America.
