DNC Platform Official to Speak at Black Caucus Event

By Deborah Simmons, The Washington Times

A vice chairman of the Democrats’ convention platform committee will deliver the keynote address at this month’s Congressional Black Caucus prayer breakfast.

The Rev. Cynthia Hale, senior pastor of Ray of Hope Christian Church in Decatur, Georgia, served as a platform vice chair on the Democratic National Committee Convention held in Philadelphia in July, when Hillary Clinton was nominated.

Ms. Hale is no stranger to the intersection of politics and the public square. Within a few months of Barack Obama’s entrance into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, she was appointed a member of the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. And in 2015, after Mrs. Clinton had announced her second run for the presidency, Ms. Hale led a prayer circle in Atlanta on her behalf.
