Mayor of Columbia, South Carolina

In 2009, he won a posthumous pardon for radio host Tom Joyner's two great uncles, who were wrongfully convicted in the 1913 death of a Confederate Army veteran. In 2016, he was acknowledged for his work with My Brother's Keeper, a program created by then-President Barack Obama to help boys and young men of color.
