The Howard Law Alumni Association held a luncheon this afternoon to continue the celebration of President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration, now less than 24 hours away. Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-N.Y.) gave the keynote address that focused on the impact former Howard Law School vice dean Charles Houston had on the election of the country's first African-American president.
