The Leadership Project with Donna Edwards

The Leadership Project is designed to engage members of the Wake Forest community with inspiring stories from leaders who represent a variety of professional paths, span a range of age groups and embrace diverse worldview.

Donna F. Edwards served as the U.S. Representative for Maryland's 4th congressional district from 2008 to 2017. A lawyer and longtime community activist, she defeated 15-year incumbent Albert Wynn in the 2008 Democratic primary, and following his resignation, won a special election on June 17, 2008 to fill the remainder of this term. She was sworn in two days later on June 19, becoming the first African-American woman to represent Maryland in the United States Congress.
