Mayor Alvin Brown and Congressman Corrine Brown invite Jacksonville to a special reception and book signing on July 13 featuring Congressman James Clyburn. Congressman Clyburn will discuss his recent release “Blessed Experiences: Genuinely Southern, Proudly Black.” This inspiring memoir tells of the Civil Rights leader’s journey from the South during the Jim Crow-era to Capitol Hill.
Congressman Clyburn, the third highest-ranking Democrat in the House, will discuss his road to success and share his amazing story of how he was able to beat the odds. From his work as a Civil Rights leader to his work in the House of Representatives, Congressman Clyburn has a proven record of leadership and advocacy.
This will be an inspirational event as we mark the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Rights Act. Please contact the Office of Special Events at (904) 630-3690 to reserve your spot for the reception and book signing.
