Campaign Kickoff

Estella giving kickoff speech

Flanked by pre-selected honorary flags and surrounded by the enthusiastic energy of her native hometown alumni club members hailing from Phyllis Wheatley School (a national historic site) in Poplar Bluff, Missouri, Estella Johnson-Hunt delivers her campaign kickoff speech for the U.S. Senate (D-IL) on July 3, 2004 in Rockville, MD to open up SEMOSCC's first night of events for its 37th annual reunion, hosted this year by the DC/MD chapter.

Before close of SEMOSCC's 37th annual reunion, the DC/MD host chapter's president and other fellow club members give U.S. Senate candidate Estella Johnson-Hunt their endorsement with promises of support and a rousing "V" for Victory sendoff back to her state of Illinois.
