Maia Chaka is the first African-American woman to referee an NFL game.

Maia Chaka made history on Sunday, becoming the first black woman to officiate an NFL game.

Chaka worked as a line judge for the Jets-Panthers game.

Chaka said on the official NFL Instagram post before the game that “it’s a privilege that I’ve been chosen to represent women and women of color in the most popular sport in America.”

She is just the third on-field female NFL official, joining Sarah Thomas and Shannon Eastin.
