Alabama’s Governor Apologizes for Wearing Blackface in Her Youth — Because of Course She Did — The Root

Months after saying she didn’t know nothing about her sorority’s college yearbook page showing women in blackface, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey on Thursday issued an apology about having worn blackface herself in a separate incident as an undergraduate at Auburn University.

According to the Montgomery Advertiser, the governor, perhaps more nationally known this year for having signed into law a near-total abortion ban, said she did not recall wearing blackface while she was a student at Auburn during the 1960s.
