Black Republicans in Alabama Are Getting the Party Started
Darius Foster, Alabama House of Representatives
Small business owner Darius Foster wants to represent the Birmingham area in the state House of Representatives. Foster, who has been appointed to serve on state commissions related to education and other issues, says he will bring fresh ideas to a district that has grown more racially and economically diverse. "I will build bridges not barriers," he says. "It's simply time for a new direction. Business as usual is no longer acceptable."
