Game Changer: Gloria Bromell Tinubu

Gloria Bromell Tinubu


Gloria's hardworking parents had less than a elementary school education, but she went on to become the first African American to receive a Ph.D. in Applied Economics from Clemson University. As an economist and a problem solver, Gloria is hands down the best woman to represent South Carolina's 7th District in Congress.

Gloria began her career in politics in 1993 when she was elected to the Atlanta City Council. She later served as a member of the Georgia Board of Education and the General Assembly.

In 2011, Gloria returned to South Carolina to restore her family home and farm and to teach in the College of Business Administration at Coastal Carolina University.

Gloria was previously a tenured professor and chair of the economics department at Spelman College.

She serves on the board of directors of two local community development organizations and for several years owned a small business that specialized in community economic development.

Gloria earned her B.F.A. from Howard University and her M.S. and Ph.D. from Clemson University.
