Lisa Jackson was one of a kind.  Not only was she the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, she is also a black woman.  Jackson stepped down recently after a four year period of leading the nation’s top environmental regulatory agency.   Jackson’s tenure was a consistent battle with Republicans to try to make changes to environmental regulations.
