What’s amazing about this is she is not only Black, but she is the first female to hold this title.

Brewer, according to EBONY said, “I am so honored to have the pleasure of working with the Starbucks leadership team to realize our highest of aspirations for the company and I look forward to working closely with the astute and talented leaders across the enterprise.”

This isn’t the first time Brewer made history, the 54-year-old became the first Black person to lead Walmart as the Sam’s Club CEO.

While there Brewer fought for diversity and lead with #BoycottRacistSamsClub.

She said, “I demand it of my team and within the structure. And then, every now and then, you have to nudge your partners, and you have to speak up and speak out. I try to set an example. I mentor many women inside my company and outside the company because I think it’s important.”

Congratulations Rosalind Brewer!
