Congressman James E. Clyburn, Blessed Experiences: Genuinely Southern, Proudly Black

Thursday, October 2, 2014 at 7:00pm

Central Library, Wheeler Auditorium 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

From his humble beginnings in Sumter, South Carolina, to his prominence as the third highest ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives, Congressman Clyburn has led an extraordinary life. In Blessed Experiences, he tells how an African American boy from the Jim Crow-era South beat the odds to achieve great success and become, as President Obama describes him, "one of a handful of people who, when they speak, the entire Congress listens."

Congressman Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland will introduce Congressman Clyburn.
