About Mathias de Sousa
Mathias de Sousa was the first African American to serve in the colonial Maryland legislature. He was the only Black person to sit in any legislative body in what would become the United States. De Sousa was elected to the Maryland General Assembly in 1642. His legacy built the foundation for leaders today, which is why we chose to honor him through this summit.Register Now
