The Bay Area and the Nation mourns the loss of former U.S. Congressman Ron Dellums, who has died. T.R. Goldman of the Washington Post said of Dellums: "Ronald V. Dellums, who entered the U.S. House of Representatives in 1971 as a fiery anti-war activist from Berkeley and grew over 14 terms into a deft and respected legislator, becoming the first African-American to chair the Armed Services Committee and helping win the fight to impose economic sanctions on apartheid South Africa, died July 30. He was 82." Oakland Civil Rights Attorney and soon to announce Oakland mayoral candidate, Pamela Price gives a personal perspective for Wright Enterprises Community Spotlight.
