Speaker Pelosi, John Lewis and CBC Members send Rep. Cummings a shout-out from Ghana




To @RepCummings with love from Ghana, where we’re solemnly observing 400 yrs since the first enslaved Africans arrived in America. Thank you Elijah for fearlessly speaking truth. https://t.co/tEz266LI3U

1. Leadership on display

Isn't this supposed to be her time off? Yet she visits Africa w/what looks like some of
her fellow congresspersons to speak about a shame on America/Europe's past.

3. More like time away from DC, I think;

Speaker (and other congresspersons) don't really get time off.

7. Yes

Notice that people complain that Congresspersons are "stuck in the Beltway," but when they leave the Beltway, they're criticized for not staying in Washington?

5. Can anyone name the people from left to right?

I recognize Wilson, is that Pressley?
Of course Nancy and Lewis, and Ilhan.
Did any R(acist)s attend?

6. L-R

Terri Sewell, Frederica Wilson, Yvette Clarke. Bobby Rush, Karen Bass, Jim Clyburn, Speaker Pelosi, Joyce Beatty, John Lewis, Hank Johnson, Marcia Fudge, Sheila Jackson-Lee, Ilhan Omar.

I don't think any Republicans went on the trip, but all committee-sponsored official CODELs (this was likely sponsored by the Homeland Security Committee) must be conducted on a bipartisan basis, so Republican were surely invited but declined (because "Slavery? Who cares?" ).
