U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings will stop by Hood College today at 7 p.m. to launch a yearlong celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Cummings will give a talk, "Realizing the Dream," in the college's Hodson Auditorium at Rosenstock Hall. The public is invited to attend.

Cummings, D-7th, who has been a member of Congress since 1996, began his public service career in the Maryland House of Delegates, where he served for 13 years.

In the Maryland General Assembly, he served as chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus of Maryland and was the first African-American in Maryland history to be named speaker pro tempore.
