Rep. Elijah Cummings of Baltimore addresses those gathered in the Murphy Fine Arts Center for the unveiling of the Barack Obama statue. "I am so happy to be black I do not know what to do with it," Rep. Elijah Cummings said as he spoke before the unveiling. He stood beside the likeness of the man with whom he will sit, Tuesday night after inauguration ceremonies, in the White House "drinking Kool Aid." The wax likeness of Obama went on display at the National Great Blacks in Wax Museum in Baltimore.
