Parren Mitchell was a giant of a man whom I greatly admired. He was fearless, determined and committed to breaking down racial barriers. His life was dedicated to fighting for justice and equal opportunity for all Americans. He was an inspiration to those of us who care about providing a voice to Americans who are often denied a chance at the American Dream.
