Celebrating the 112th Birthday of Adam Clayton Powell Jr November 29, 1908
Today, I salute and honor the greatest of our congressional black representatives, some even say he was the greatest congressional legislator who ever lived, Dr. Adam Clayton Powell Jr. The Black Blogger starts off by going back to a winter's day in 1955 when Representative Powell spoke before the 84th Congress and spoke about his hope of the passage of Civil Rights legislation. He took to task the entire Legislative Branch of Government for the inaction related to African Americans securing civil rights.
