(Washington, DC) - "I am pleased the entire South Carolina delegation is joining together to support J.A. Delaine, Jr. as our State's nominee to the Commission that will oversee the Brown vs. Board of Education 50th commemoration, which the country will celebrate in 2004," said Congressman Clyburn.  "He is without question the most qualified person to represent the role Clarendon County's Briggs vs. Elliott case played in the landmark desegregation decision.

"I appreciate the support of all my colleagues on this nomination, and I look forward to seeing the fruits of Mr. Delaine's work on this commission."
