ESSENCE magazine has done a much-needed feature on the 29 African American women that work in the White House as part of the Obama administration. These women don’t just have any ordinary roles, however. The positions include U.S. Attorney General (Loretta Lynch), Senior Advisor to the President (Valerie Jarrett), National Security Advisor (Susan Rice) and more.

These inspiring women are worth noting and thanks to ESSENCE, we have a full gallery for you to enjoy. Meet the 29 amazing women here and see some photos below!
