Elect Mel King to Congress!

B.Michael would have first encountered Mel King early on in his law school sojourn at Northeastern’s Minority Orientation in May 1981. King was among the leaders tapped to address incoming students of color and offer his unique perspective on what it means to study law in Boston.


B.Michael would have felt a connection to this visionary community organizer and Black son of immigrants from Guyana and Barbados via Canada. (B.Michael’s own father’s people had immigrated from the Bahamas.) A handful of years later, King would run for federal office and enjoy B.Michael’s support. The circular below lived in B.Michael’s files in a folder with King’s name.
