Harris County, Texas made history on Tuesday after 17 black female judges were sworn in among other newly elected officials for the new year.
The women, who were part of an effort dubbed the "Black Girl Magic" campaign, all won races in November to be judges in various Harris County courts in an election that featured more black women on the county's ballot than any other.
The "Black Girl Magic" campaign debuted over the summer with a viral photo that featured the 17 women and two other sitting Harris County judges inside a courtroom. Although those two judges lost their bids in November for seats on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, they will retain their local judgeships.
