NOW OVER TO ____ WITH THE NEWS

NEWS INTRO VIDEO

------------------

The US city of Chicago has made history by electing an African-American woman as its mayor for the first time. Lori Lightfoot is a former federal prosecutor who has not held political office before. She fought off competition from 13 other candidates and dominated the final run-off election with more than 74% when the vote was called. Lightfoot is also the city's first gay mayor and celebrated on-stage with her wife and daughter.

In other news,

The last known survivor of the transatlantic slave ships, brought to the US in 1860, has been identified by an academic at Newcastle University. Sally Smith was kidnapped from West Africa by slave traders and lived until 1937 in Alabama, staying on the plantation where she had been enslaved. Hannah Durkin made the discovery while researching first-hand accounts, archives and census records. The previous last known survivor had been a former slave who died in 1935.

 

On this day in 1860, the first Pony Express mail, traveling by horse and rider relay teams, simultaneously leaves St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California. Ten days later, on April 13, the westbound rider and mail packet completed the approximately 1,800-mile journey and arrived in Sacramento, beating the eastbound packet’s arrival in St. Joseph by two days and setting a new standard for speedy mail delivery. Although ultimately short-lived and unprofitable, the Pony Express captivated America’s imagination and helped win federal aid for a more economical overland postal system. It also contributed to the economy of the towns on its route and served the mail-service needs of the American West in the days before the telegraph or an efficient transcontinental railroad.
