Senate Unanimously Confirms First Black Chief Of A U.S. Military Service


General Charles CQ Brown

Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr. has made history.

The Senate unanimously confirmed the four-star general as the U.S. Air Force's chief of staff in a 98-0 vote, making him the first African American to lead a U.S. military service.

His historic confirmation comes as the United States is grappling with its history of racial injustice and systemic mistreatment of black communities by law enforcement.

Brown's confirmation happened on the same day the family of George Floyd held his funeral in Houston.

Floyd's death has sparked protests across the United States and in many international cities. Floyd, a black man, died last month after a white Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

Brown, who is nicknamed "CQ," recently spoke out about the protests and reflected on his own experiences with racism, both growing up and in the military.
