Yesterday, the Rockefeller Center closed out its winter term public programs with a lecture by Artur Davis (D-AL). It was the second installment of our New Voices in Washington series, in which we bring emerging leaders from the Capitol to campus to interact with Dartmouth students. He spoke about the lack of progress that's been made on big issues over the last two decades and admonished the students to play an active role in overcoming that stalemate.
Congressman Davis represents the 7th District in Alabama, which includes Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Selma, and much of the rest of central western Alabama. It will be interesting to see whether he can eventually win a statewide election, whether for governor or senator, from his home state.
