USC 16th Annual Robert Smalls Lecture by Congressman Jim Clyburn: “On Whose Shoulders We Stand”
Monday - April 29, 2013
This week's podcast features some of the remarks by South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn delivered at USC's annual Robert Smalls Lecture in late March. It is named for Robert Smalls, a South Carolina slave, Civil War hero and congressman who had a significant impact on South Carolina with his contributions to political, education and economic reform. Clyburn, a native of Sumter, S.C., is the assistant Democratic leader in the 113th Congress and third highest ranking Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives. He is the liaison to the appropriations committee and one of the Democratic Caucus’ primary liaisons with the White House. The university’s African American Studies Program established the Robert Smalls Lecture Series in 1997 to share the latest research and scholarship on African American studies with the community. Join us for Representative Clyburn's remarks available to listeners on Monday!
