Brittany Ann Byuraium “Bree” Newsome, made a heroic effort by climbing the flagpole at the South Carolina statehouse and removing the racist confederate flag. In fact, 37-year-old Newsome who hails from Charlotte, North Carolina made a Supershero move. She climbed for us, beating the government to the punch and gifting life lessons to black girls on being fearless and beautiful. Bree’s climb, her arrest, and her illustration in superhero gear across social media, all help in making her a real life Black Supershero.
