Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings and James Dale will discuss the posthumous memoir and legacy of politician and civil rights advocate, Elija Cumming (D-MD). 

We’re Better Than This highlights Cummings work during the Trump presidency, focusing on his time as Chair of the House Oversight Committee, which investigated prescription drug prices, family separation, and the Trump administration during his tenure. The politician includes lessons that he has learned throughout his life, including the importance of his faith, letting go of bitterness and ensuring that people treated him with respect. Throughout, the congressman's dedication to civil service, desire to mentor younger generations, and admiration for his colleagues shines through. The book concludes as his widow, Maya, remembers his final days.

Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings is an American political scientist, policy wonk, writer and public speaker based in Washington D.C. Maya was married to late Congressman Elijah Cummings. 

James Dale has collaborated on a number of books on sports, business, medicine, and life lessons. His works include The Power of Nice with agent-negotiator Ron Shapiro; Just Show Up with Hall of Fame baseball player Cal Ripken Jr.; and The Q Factor with Super Bowl–winning coach Brian Billick.
