Many people were disappointed with the election results in Sweden. Seems there may not be many if any mandates over the next four years. However, in my opinion, one bit of good news is the appointment of Alice Bah Kuhnkes as Minister for Culture and Democracy. She became only the second black minister in the Swedish government following Nyamko Sabuni.

The new Culture MInister was born and raised in southern Sweden, had a successful career in media, founded a think tank for civil society, Sektor3, worked as a sustainability manager at a technology consultancy company and was General Director of The Youth Board.

Editor’s note: The former culture minister disappointed a lot of people when she was photographed laughing while cutting a screaming, human black face cake.
