FRAMINGHAM — U.S. Rep. Ayanna Pressley , the first Black woman elected to Congress in Massachusetts, has been selected to deliver the keynote address for Framingham State University 's undergraduate commencement ceremony in May. The university announced the news Thursday morning in a press release. Pressley, 49, a Democrat and former Boston city councilor, has represented the Massachusetts' 7th Congressional District since 2019 when she defeated 10-term Democratic incumbent Michael Capuano in a September 2018 primary race.
