Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings will be laid to rest in his hometown of Baltimore Friday morning.
Cummings’ family and political dignitaries are scheduled to speak at his funeral, which is being held at the New Psalmist Baptist Church at 10 a.m.
Speakers are set to include former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Bishop Walter S. Thomas Jr. of New Psalmist will deliver the eulogy to honor the icon.
Cummings’ funeral comes a day after a ceremony in Washington, where he became the first African American lawmaker to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.
