Bakari Sellers Biography

Bakari Sellers was born into an activist family. His father, civil rights leader Cleveland Sellers, instilled core values in him to continue in the tireless commitment to service.

He continued his education at the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2008 earning a juris doctor. Sellers currently practices law with the Strom Law Firm, LLC in Columbia, SC where he heads the firm’s Strategic Communication and Public Affairs team and has recently added Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consulting to the list of services offered.

His political career did not stop there, in 2014 he was the Democratic Nominee for Lt. Governor in the state of South Carolina.

His accomplishments do not go unnoticed within the Democratic Party. In 2008 he served on President Obama’s South Carolina steering committee.

Sellers has served as a featured speaker at various political events, universities, and national trade organizations across the country, such as the 2008 and 2016 Democratic National Convention. He has been a champion of progressive policies to address issues ranging from education and poverty to preventing domestic violence and childhood obesity.
