WUKY / Ricochet Effect Woman of Distinction: Angela C. Evans

Office of Fayette County Attorney

WUKY and Project Ricochet are celebrating Women’s History Month with the Inaugural Women of Distinction initiative. Each Monday you’re going to get to know some of the women who made our list for 2024. Lexington native Angela C. Evans made history in 2022 when she was sworn in as the first African American county attorney in Kentucky. With more than two decades of service as a lawyer and public official, Angela provides a deep and proven understanding of policy and the legislative process to her role as Fayette county attorney. She previously served for three terms representing the sixth district on the Urban County Council and garnered national attention in 2018 while addressing the removal of Confederate statues from downtown. Here’s some of her conversation with Project Ricochet hosts Dr. Abeni El Amin and Renee Collins Cobb.
