Last night, Russell Wilson led the Seattle Seahawks in 43-8 victory at Super Bowl XLVIII. Russell Wilson became the second black quarterback to start and win the Super Bowl.
Wilson—whose grandfather, Harry B. Wilson, Jr. is a former president of the historically Black university Norfolk State University—joins Doug Williams, who was the first black quarterback to start and win a Super Bowl when he played for Washington.
Wilson finished 18-of-25 for 206 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers.
Although Wilson didn’t win MVP, I think he’ll still be proud to have made Black History!
