Ballerific Women: Marian Brown, Dallas County’s First Black Sheriff

⠀⠀
In a perfect world, people of color would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and/or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. This is #BlackExcellence. These are #BallerificWomen.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One of those special individuals is Marian Brown, Dallas County’s First Black Sheriff.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Marian Brown made history when she became the first black sheriff for Dallas County.
