The Hon. James L. Felder has the distinction of being the first African American voted into the South Carolina legislature since the Reconstruction Period. He also has the distinction of being selected to head the casket team for the late President John F. Kennedy in November 1963 while Felder was enlisted in the U.S. Army.
