Pennsylvania has produced a long list of iconic Black people. From Will Smith and Wilt Chamberlin to Jill Scott and Marian Anderson,
trailblazers from across the culture hail from PA. Another fact about Pennsylvania is that is one of the political “battleground” states. Depending on how residents
vote one election to another, different political parties take control and define policy for years at a time.

Be on the right side of history this general election and cast your vote on November 3rd.
