The Honorable Alma Stallworth
We continue our month-long celebration of Detroit’s black history when we talk with one of the most powerful African-American women to ever sit in the Michigan House of Representatives. Dr. Alma Stallworth has written her memoir and we’ll hear about the legacy she left behind in the state legislature.
