Applaud this brotha. Michael Tubbs, at age 27, became not only the youngest but also the first Black mayor of Stockton, California in 2017. Tubbs is now 29-years-old and HBO is releasing a documentary called Stockon On My Mind that recounts his incredible journey to local political power through empathy, community-building and love. Also, the ways in which his life has changed since being elected into office.

During these times of intense social and political strife, Michael Tubbs is inspiring. He reminds even the most cynical of us that there ARE some good people out there who wish to gain access to the levers of power not for their own self-interest, but to make life better for those they serve. It’s f***ing beautiful.
