Stacey Abrams is a Georgia-based American politician, lawyer, author, and activist. She was previously the minority leader in the House of Representatives in the State of Georgia, a position Abrams held for a decade, from 2007 to 2017.

Who is Stacey Abrams?

Stacey was born Stacey Yvonne Abrams on December 9, 1973, in Madison, Wisconsin. Abrams grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and was a class valedictorian at Avondale High School. Subsequently, Abrams graduated magna cum laude from Atlanta’s Spelman College.

Moreover, Stacey also has a Master of Public Affairs from the University of Texas at Austin and a J.D. degree from Yale Law School.

Stacey is a trailblazer for African-American women in local and state-level politics, becoming the first black woman to lead state-wide nominations in Georgia. Under her leadership, Georgia saw state-wide reforms in voting legislation. Her actions, in turn, led to record voter turn-outs.

Furthermore, she was instrumental in founding the anti-voter fraud organization Fair Fight Action in 2018.

In addition, Stacey is also the first black woman to deliver a speech during the 2019 State of the Union response address.

Besides her political career, Abrams has also authored ten books.

Stacey Abrams Married to Husband?

For an eminent politician, Stacey Abrams’ personal life has been a mystery for the most part. Stacey is a believer that her race, relationship status, family background, or any private matter should not affect her ability to conduct her professional career.

According to Sun.com, Stacey Abrams is not, nor has she ever been married. Furthermore, she is highly career-driven, much to the detriment of her dating life.

However, Abrams uncharacteristically talked about how her heart broke at eighteen. In her 2018 memoir, Minority Leader, Abrams spoke of a boy named Chad who broke up with her. The incident caused Abrams to take stock of her life. Consequently, she made a spreadsheet to plan out the rest of her life so that nobody could blindside her again.

The spreadsheet contained life goals that included milestones like authoring a best-selling book by age 24, being a millionaire by age 30, and being the mayor of Atlanta by the age of 35.

It is perhaps because of this incident that Abrams dedicated the rest of her life to her career. This stopped her from settling down and starting a family. Nonetheless, Abrams has stated that she has not been celibate all her life. In fact, she has led a rather colorful love life.

In July 2018, Abrams tweeted in response to a BuzzFeed journalist. She revealed that she dated a felon — whom she helped put behind bars. Furthermore, she also revealed in her tweet that the boyfriend was an inspiration behind a character she penned for her 2001 book, Rules of Engagement.
