Farewell Ceremony for Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch [Video]

Loretta Lynch, the nation's first black female attorney general, bids farewell

The first African-American woman to serve as the nation’s top law enforcement official, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch bid farewell to her post on Sunday in a speech delivered from a place as historic and consequential to racial justice in America as her appointment: the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama.

“When I was born, it would have been unimaginable to think that an African-American woman could even sit on a jury, much less serve as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer.,” Lynch, 57, said in her final address as attorney general from the sanctuary of the church that in 1963, four reputed Klansmen bombed the church, killing four black girls.
