Meet Helena’s First Democrat Black Mayor Since The Republican Black Mayor in 1873 [Video]

Congratulations to Mayor Collins for being the second African American Mayor elected in Helena, Montana since the Civil War!

The current news media cycle since the election seems to be discrediting the actual first mayor of Helena, probably because he was a Republican shortly after the civil war. They claim it was not “official” because it was not yet incorporated. The first African American Mayor of Helena, according to the Montana Historical Society, was actually a Republican named E.T Johnson – Edward T. Johnson.
