Illinois Supreme Court Justice hopeful Joy Virginia Cunningham will host an Informational Breakfast Roundtable with the African American media Friday, February 3, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 11 a.m., at Josephine’s Hardtimes Restaurant, 436 East 79th Street, in Chicago. 
 
Besides celebrating Black History month, Justice Cunningham wants the Black press to get to know her not just as a candidate but from whence she comes.
 
Her story is one of excellence and goals she has made doing it the old fashion way—hard work, and she wants to share her stories with the Black media.
 
The meeting is befitting given the kick-off of Black History Month especially since if the Justice wins she will be the first African American woman to sit on the Illinois Supreme Court in 194-years since this branch of government was created.
 
This race will attract national and international attention.
 
According to her campaign, Justice Cunningham is the first African American Woman to be on the Democratic primary ballot for the Supreme Court. “It is our belief, that there has never been two African American to serve on any state supreme court in the history of the United States simultaneously.  
 
“With changes in the region demographics, this may be the last opportunity to elect an African American to the Supreme Court. 
 
“We are also requesting an editorial board interview from each paper for a possible endorsement. Please advise us on your process.
 
A continental breakfast will be served on Friday. For more information, please contact Al Kindle, Political Director, at 312-566-6829 or e-mail confirmation at aldophus@gmail.com.
