All 19 Black women who ran to be a judge in Harris County, Texas, won their respective races.

Before securing their victories, the candidacies of the women represented the largest number of Black women to appear on a voting ballot in the state.  

Back in September, LaShawn A. Williams, one of the 19 victors, shared a photo on Facebook writing that she was very "humbled" to be a part of the history-making experience.  

"I’ve waited for the reveal of this photo of 19 judicial candidates for several weeks - 19 Black women running for judge in Harris County, Houston, TX. This entire time I've thought of what I'd say the day we were able to share this moment in history with everyone. But really I'm humbled,” wrote Williams. 

Congratulations!
