Join us for the 37th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration featuring Bakari Sellers!

Bakari made history in 2006 when, at just 22 years old, he defeated a 26-year incumbent State Representative to become the youngest member of the South Carolina state legislature and the youngest African American elected official in the nation.  In 2014 he was the Democratic Nominee for Lt. Governor in the state of South Carolina.  Sellers earned his undergraduate degree from Morehouse College, where he served as student body president and his law degree from the University of South Carolina. 

In addition to having served on President Barack Obama's South Carolina steering committee during the 2008 election, Sellers is widely considered to be a rising star within the Democratic Party and a leading voice for his generation.
