Congressman James E. Clyburn to Give Meharry Medical College Commencement Address
Date:5/10/2010

in the charge to improve health care for all Americans particularly underserved communities.”

About James E. Clyburn: In 1970, Clyburn pursued his dream of running for the South Carolina House of Representatives. He was unsuccessful in his bid, however, he caught the eye of the newly elected governor, John Carl West. West asked Clyburn to join his administration. In accepting the post, Clyburn became the first African-American advisor to a South Carolina governor since post Reconstruction.

After almost four years on his staff, Governor West appointed Clyburn as South Carolina Human Affairs Commissioner. It was a position he would hold for almost 18 years serving four Governors -- two Democrats and two Republicans.

In 1992, Clyburn resigned his position as Human Affairs Commissioner to devote, fulltime in pursuit of his lifelong dream of serving in the United States Congress -- where no black South Carolinian had served since 1897. This time, in a field of five Democratic primary candidates, Clyburn won with 56 percent of the vote, avoiding a run-off. He easily won the general election for South Carolina's Sixth Congressional District, and was sworn in as a member of the United States House of Representatives in January 1993.

Congressman Clyburn began his steady climb on Capitol Hill winning election as co-President of his freshman class. Six years later, he was unanimously elected Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus and to a seat on the coveted Appropriations Committee. In 2002, he was elected in a three-way race to serve as Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus, and in January 2006, his peers unanimously elevated him to Chair of the Caucus. In addition to serving as House Majority Whip, Congressman Clyburn serves as leader of the House Democrats' Faith Working Group.
