Open to the Public
A conversation with Bakari Sellers, moderated by Bread Loaf faculty member Doug Jones.
Bakari Sellers 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 Sellers won the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor.
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. He has followed in the footsteps of his father, civil rights leader Dr. Cleveland Sellers, in his commitment to public service while championing policies to address issues ranging from education and poverty to preventing domestic violence and childhood obesity.
