The AFRO is honored to have shared place and space with the late Congressman Elijah E. Cummings and is continuing to tell his story with a special edition, “From a Sharecropper’s Son...” to be published on Nov. 30. We will devote the entire publication to honor and remember our friend and public servant. One would be hard pressed to find so much about this great man in one compilation.
From the first column he wrote for the AFRO to his last, published just weeks before his death; from the first photos of his political career to the most popular ones that saturated social media and mainline press; to the recollections of friends and colleagues, the tributes of mentees and the well wishes and well framed eulogies that sent him home.
The AFRO is leaving no stone unturned in its effort to bestow upon him the praise due such an honorable man and esteemable hero.
