Woman Rejects The Bible. Gives the Black Power Salute and Takes Oath Of Office On The…


A 26-year old doctoral student at UGA who won a seat on the local County Commission by only 13 votes insisted on NOT taking her oath of office on the Bible… but instead the autobiography of Malcolm X.


“I wanted Malcolm’s book,” she said, referring to “The Autobiography of Malcolm X,” which, despite its title, was written by Alex Haley after its subject’s assassination by members of the Nation of Islam.

“I think they saw it coming,” said Ms. Parker, who also raised her fist in a black-power salute while taking the oath.

She is a 26-year-old doctoral student at the University of Georgia, in Athens, and won her race by just 13 votes. She campaigned for “bold, progressive leadership in Athens.”
