Easley, South Carolina has a phenomenal African-American superstar on their hands. #Jasmine Twitty, 25, is the youngest judge ever appointed in the city and the state. According to a report by #Black America Web, “Twitty graduated from the College of Charleston and is treasurer for the Urban League of the Upstate. She’s also a member of the Upstate Network Young Professionals board and has gained a reputation of assisting other young workers in their career ascension.”
There were many claims to discredit Twitty’s credentials, claiming that the College of Charleston does not have a law school. However, a close look at the municipal judge roster’s list for South Carolina shows Twitty’s name appearing. Twitty has been recognized for quite some time for working hard to develop young people into professionals, and is working to help them knock down barriers, very close to how her new appointment seems to be shattering barriers and expectations. She will now be part of American history with the grand milestone in the law and judicial industry, and appears to have already taken her seat on the bench as of this past week. Twitty will be joining those that are fighting for justice at a turning point for the perception of African-American people.
