Ali Sekou made history in the US after being elected to Concord City Council as the first New American Muslim representative, a local outlet reported.

He will also be the youngest member of the newly elected council at 40-years-old, and the first Black member of the council in the city’s 289-year history.

Sekou immigrated to New Hampshire from Niger in 2012, and holds a master’s degree in community engagement from the University of New Hampshire.
