Boston's city council swore in the most diverse group in its history on Monday.
The Boston Herald reports the 13-member council made up more than half by women and people of color were ushered in by Mayor Marty Walsh during a ceremony at Faneuil Hall.
The council had been a white male bastion for decades, but Boston is now a “majority minority” city where whites comprise roughly 47% of the population.
