Terrence Martin, the first Black AFT Michigan president in history, is elected to a full term

By Ken Coleman

During the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) Michigan convention in Detroit held this month, Terrence Martin was elected to a full, two-year term as president.  

Martin is the first African American to serve in the post and said he is “honored.” The May 4 vote came after he replaced the retiring AFT Michigan president David Hecker last June.
