Meet 21-Year-Old Jewell Jones, the Youngest African-American Ever Elected as State Representative in Inkster, Michgan, U.S

At 20, the young African-American councilman, who is the first politician in his family, became the youngest person to ever sit on Inkster’s six-member City Council, after he was sworn into office in November.

Inkster is a majority African American suburb in Detroit with a population of more than 25,000.

Jewell, who represents the city’s 11th District, was also a full-time student at the University of Michigan-Dearborn.

“WE WON THE ELECTION – YOU AND I MADE HISTORY, YET AGAIN. I’m looking forward to serving you all,” he wrote on Twitter with a picture of his 22,574 votes against Republican Robert Pope’s 11,563.
