Nigerian-born Uzoma Asagwara has been elected into a Canadian legislative assembly as a lawmaker in Manitoba. Until Tuesday’s vote, no black person had ever been elected to the Manitoba Legislature in the 150-year history of the province.

That makes Asagwara the first Black, queer woman in the legislature.

She won the Union Station seat for the NDP.

Asagwara, a first-generation Canadian whose parents are Nigerian is a longtime community activist in Winnipeg’s core.

She also becomes one of three Black people to have been elected into the 150-year parliament.
