Marking the passing of Rep. Elijah Cummings last week, community leaders, elected officials and friends gathered together Wednesday night to honor the former congressman at Morgan State University, where Cummings served as a member of the Board of Regents for 19 years.
“I have lost a friend,” Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Maryland) said. “Our nation has lost a booming voice for truth, fairness and liberty.”
