Capitol Hill By Victoria Christopher Murray and ReShonda Tate Billingsley Valencia Morgan Hill is a two-term Congresswoman from the 12th district in Virginia. A 1993 political science graduate from Spelman, she met her husband, Lawrence Hill when he attended Morehouse and the two are law school graduates of UVA. While Lawrence became a high powered attorney, arguing civil rights cases before the Supreme Court, Valencia was on the other side of the legal aisle. A career prosecutor, she became inspired to go into politics when under President Obama, a vacancy came open in her district. She was approached by the local Democratic Party and in one of the only swing districts in Virginia, Valencia won her first term in 2014; then in 2016, she was very excited to be on the ticket with Hillary Clinton for her second term. However like everyone else in America, on the morning of November 9th, Valencia found herself shocked that she would now be serving in a Congress under President Donald Trump. Now, as the Democrats are looking for that saving grace to get them out of this mess, Valencia’s name continues to come up as a viable 2020 candidate. For the first time, she’s considering the possibility of a run. It makes sense in her life now — she’s learned her way around Capitol Hill, her name has been on a number of key bills that have left the House and on the home front, her husband is doing well, and her children: twins, Ebony and Ethan are rising Seniors at Spelman and Morehouse doing well also. Valencia begins to give serious thought that this may be the time for her to serve her country in a different capacity. But just as Valencia makes this decision to consider a presidential run, everything in life seems to change: her afro-centric daughter (lock-styling, dashiki-wearing girl) is engaged to a white man from Lynchburg, Virginia and whose parents are big Trump supporters and donors. And her son, who has always wanted to work at NASA, has decided on a different kind of ride: he wants to be a rapper. From meeting Ebony’s fiancé’s parents, to having to deal with her son’s Anti-Trump Rap which is a #1 hit on iSound, that road to the White House is a bumpy one for Congresswoman Valencia Hill. Capitol Hill is a dramedy, that will entertain as well as educate the listeners to the things that are going on and going down in Washington.
