When Tiara Mack announced her candidacy for the Rhode Island state Senate last year, few believed the 26-year-old Black lesbian from the South would unseat the longtime incumbent, Harold Metts, a Democrat who opposes abortion and had served in the state Legislature since 1985.
“I was my biggest advocate; I was my biggest cheerleader,” said Mack, who ousted Metts in the primaries with 60 percent of the vote.
Metts, a Baptist church deacon and retired educator, spent 15 years in the state Senate after 20 years in the state House. Defeating him was no easy feat for Mack, a recent Brown University graduate, activist and volunteer. She spent a year canvassing throughout the heavily Hispanic district that includes a swath of Providence, Rhode Island’s capital.
