Umana follows in the footsteps of Barack Obama, who became the first black man elected as HLR’s president in 1990. She is a doctorate candidate at Harvard Law School, and is most interested in the intersection between government and African American studies by exploring how stereotypes of black women are reproduced and reinforced in American Political discourse.
