Eric H. Holder, Jr. made history in 2009 when President Obama appointed him as attorney
general, the first African American to hold that position. Holder served in the Obama

Administration as attorney general from February 2009 to April 2015, the third longest-
serving attorney general in U.S. history. During his tenure, he championed hallmark

legislation on voting rights, immigration law, national security, and same-sex marriage. Now,
