Representative Byron Donalds has been a congressman for less than a month, but he is already asserting himself as one of the most influential members of the 117th United States Congress. Fox News reports that he wrote a letter to the leadership of the National Museum of African American History telling them that they had “fallen short” of their duty to ‘honor’ Justice Clarence Thomas:
“As a Black man who has a profound respect for the contributions Justice Thomas has propitiated for generations to come, this museum must encapsulate his life as it does for hundreds of other monumental Black figures.”
Prominent Black and conservative leaders, including U.S. Senator Tom Scott of South Carolina, and Dr. Alveda King co-signed the letter.
We are proud that Byron Donalds, a fellow member of the Collier County Republican Party, represents us in Congress.
