Harper White speaks at Jan 6 vigils in Washington, DC
Harper White, the grandson of Jimmy and Donna Harper of Columbia, KY, and the great grandson of Bruce Montgomery, spoke alongside Members of Congress and other national leaders outside the United States Capitol on Thursday, to commemorate the anniversary of the January 6th attack on the Capitol.
White is currently the Legislative Assistant/Correspondent at the Office of Congresswoman Rosa L. DeLauro. He was working as a Capitol Hill staffer, in his first full time job after graduating from UK, when the violence unfolded at the Capitol in January, 2021.
"I'll never look at the Capitol without the reminders of that day and the reminders of the fragility of our democracy" said White, who lives on Capitol Hill. "We should not let anyone deter us from the work we do here, not let anyone deter us from doing what's right."
Harper White has been active in politics since well before college. He and his mother, Jamie White, travelled to Washington for the Inauguration back in January of 2009, prompting Ed Waggener to say of then-12-year-old Harper, "Barack Obama will become the 44th President of the United States on Tuesday, January 20, 2009, Harper's turn will be sometime around 2035."
Other Coverage from January 6: White is profiled in the opening paragraphs of this article posted by the Washington Post: Rival Jan. 6 vigils reflect deep divides over insurrection.
