Abstract:

Congressman John Conyers, Jr. was born in 1929, in Detroit, Michigan. He earned his B.A. and J.D. degrees from Wayne State University in Detroit. Conyers began his political career as an aide to Michigan Congressman John Dingell. In 1964, Conyers was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives on a platform of jobs, justice and peace. Social justice and economic opportunity were focal points of Conyers' political career. He was first African American leader on the U.S. House Judiciary Committee. Conyers attached crucial civil rights measures to the 1994 Omnibus Crime Bill, including the Racial Justice Act and the Police Accountability Act. Conyers generated the Justice Department's national study on police brutality, and conducted hearings in several cities on criminal justice matters. He was a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Conyers, the longest-serving African American in the history of the U.S. House of Representatives, was also Dean of the House.
