For the second time in less than 10 years Joy Cunningham is trying to repeat her success as a history maker by winning an election.
In 2004 she made history by becoming the first black woman to be elected president of the Chicago Bar Association, a 138-year-old association whose 22,000 members consist mostly of attorneys and judges from Illinois And now, as the only black Illinois Supreme Court candidate, Cunningham is vying to become the first Black female Supreme Court justice. If she wins the March 20 primary and the general election in November, Illinois will become the first state to have two black Supreme Court justices. Prior to Cunningham the only other black woman to run for the state's high court was Blanche Manning, who unsuccessfully ran in 1990. A win would mean Cunningham will join Charles Freeman as the only other black justice.

The three experienced judges are Joy Virginia Cunningham, 60; Aurelia Marie Pucinski, 64, and Mary Jane Theis, 63, all of Chicago.
Cunningham was appointed associate Cook County judge in 1997 and was elected to the Illinois Appellate Court in 2006. She also touts her private-sector experience; she was general counsel and corporate secretary of Northwestern Memorial HealthCare and chief counsel for health care at Loyola University. She also was the first black woman to be president of the Chicago Bar Association. Theis and Cunningham have split most of the endorsements. Cunningham is backed by Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle. Theis and Cunningham have received the higher ratings from the Chicago Bar Association, the Illinois State Bar Association and the Chicago Council of Lawyers. Cunningham also said voters have reason to be cynical: "I've seen political influence present in this race, and I think that the public has a right to feel that people who sit on their courts, especially the state's highest court, sit there free from political influences and insider influences."

If Joy Cunningham wins the November election for Illinois Supreme Court justice, she'll be one busy woman.
Of course, being busy is nothing new for her-Cunningham used to be a nurse! Cunningham, 60, is also a history-maker: In 2004 she became the first black female president of the Chicago Bar Association, and if she wins the upcoming election, she'll become the first black female Supreme Court justice. Good luck, Nurse Cunningham!
