Congresswoman Joyce Beatty Remembers Congressman Louis Stokes
“Ohio and America lost a legend today with the passing of U.S. Congressman Louis Stokes, who was 90 years old. I am honored to be the third African-American in Ohio to follow Congressman Stokes in Congress. I can't remember a time in my academic and political career that I didn't call on Congressman Stokes for guidance and I will forever be thankful for his honesty, encouragement and leadership. I join the nation to salute my longtime friend and iconic public servant.
