NSRTC Celebrates Black History Month
The North Salem Republican Town Committee celebrates Black History month honoring North Carolina Lieutenant Governor Mark Robinson. Lt. Governor Robinson is the first African-American to hold that post.
Mr. Robinson grew up in poverty in Greensboro, North Carolina, the 9th of 10 children, to an abusive alcoholic father and devout Christian mother. His living conditions prompted him and his siblings to be scattered in the foster care system, but he was eventually reunited with his widowed mother. He credits her and her faith for him being the man he is today.
Mark is a veteran of the Army, and had many manufacturing jobs. But his rise to fame in politics came in 2018 when a 2nd amendment speech he made to the Greensboro City Council went viral. Mark’s passionate speech about the importance of 2nd amendment rights resonated with the public. So in July 2019, he launched his historic campaign for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina and won. The first black person to ever do so.
