Dellums, who was first elected to Congress in 1970 and served until 1998, obtained a master's degree in social work from UC Berkeley. Lee, who was elected to fill Dellums' seat in 1998, also received a master's degree in social work from UC Berkeley.
Lee was selected to deliver the first Dellums lecture based on her commitment to peace and justice.
