Celebrating Rep. Elijah Cummings a lawmaker, who represented major parts of Baltimore and its outskirts since 1996, was seen as an advocate for cutting prescription drug prices, fighting addiction, strengthening gun control and reforming the criminal justice system.

In elementary school, he was told he was a poor learner and speaker. He went on to become a lawyer, a politician, and one of the fiercest orators in congress.

"In the Congress, Elijah was considered a north star," Nancy Pelosi said. "He was a leader of towering character and integrity. He lived the American dream, and he wanted it for everyone else."

Celebrating Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in the 1935 movie “The Little Colonel”.

👩🏽‍💻🕺🏾
Many of the tributes mentioned one of the most iconic scenes in American movie history: the staircase dance that Temple performed with Bill "Bojangles" Robinson in the 1935 movie The Little Colonel. They were the first in*******al couple to dance onscreen. But their partnership was more than just a movie milestone.

He was in his 50s. She was 6. He called her darlin'; she called him Uncle Billy.

Robinson taught Temple his joyful, elegant tap-dancing routines. She thought he was the perfect partner.

In the 1980s, Black told NPR that Robinson taught her to feel the beat, rather than count it out.

"We held hands and I learned to dance from Bill by listening, not looking at the feet," she said. "It was kind of a magic between us."

Celebrating African-American contralto singer Marian Anderson who performed in halls all over the globe—including France, England, Switzerland, the Scandinavian countries, Cuba, Brazil, Venezuela, Columbia, El Salvador, and Russia. At one point, she had 60 performances in seven months. She was traveling some 20,000 to 30,000 miles a year.

Even at the height of her fame, Ms. Anderson encountered barriers erected solely because of the color of her skin. And yet, she kept pursuing her love, with the support of her church and community, a launch to fame via an adoring European audience, and her refusal to bow down to American segregationist policies.

Celebrating Sir Desmond Tutu is one of South Africa’s most well-known human rights activists, winning the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in resolving and ending apartheid. Born in 1931 in Klerksdorp, Transvaal, South Africa, he became the first Black Anglican Archbishop of both Cape Town and Johannesburg. Known as the voice of the voiceless Black South Africans he was an outspoken critic of apartheid. Tutu also supported the economic boycott of South Africa, while constantly encouraging reconciliation between various factions associated with apartheid.

When Nelson Mandela was elected as the nation’s first Black president—he appointed Tutu chairperson of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission. In his human rights work, Tutu formulated his objective as “a democratic and just society without racial divisions,” and set forth demands for its accomplishment, including equal civil rights for all. In addition to the Nobel Prize, Tutu has been bestowed numerous awards, including the Bishop John T. Walker Distinguished Humanitarian Service Award, the Lincoln Leadership Prize and the Gandhi Peace Prize. Sir Desmond Tutu continues to travel extensively, championing human rights and the equality of all people, both within South Africa and internationally. #DesmondTutu #leadership
