Early Life And Education
The Abrams family consists of a total of six children, and he is the second oldest of the bunch. Her mother was a librarian and her father a dockworker, hence she spent most of her adolescence in Gulfport, Mississippi.
When she was a senior in high school, her family made the move to Atlanta from another city. Her parents were both educated to the point that they could become United Methodist preachers, and it was during their time at the seminary that they instilled in their children the values of serving others and maintaining a daily worship practise.
Abrams was the class valedictorian because her parents put a priority on education.
Later, Abrams went to Atlanta’s Spelman College to study politics, economics, and sociology. The time she spent there motivated her to become politically involved.
Later that year, the group she co-founded, Students for African American Empowerment, organised a protest in which they destroyed the Georgia flag (which included a Confederate battle emblem) in an attempt to have it modified to remove the image.
During the same year, 1992, Abrams participated in a televised town hall meeting when he voiced his opposition to the mayoral administration of Maynard Jackson.
In 1993, while Jackson was in the process of establishing the Office of Youth Services, he hired Abrams to work for him as a research assistant.
She attended the University of Texas at Austin’s Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs after getting her graduation from Spelman College in 1995, where she majored in public policy. After that, she graduated with a law degree from Yale (J.D., 1999).
