DescriptionBALTIMORE — More than four months have passed since Rep. Elijah Cummings died, but the Maryland Democrat’s work will continue with a book to be published later this year.

“We’re Better Than This,” a reference to a Cummings mantra, is due to be released in June, his widow, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said Monday.

Speaking at a Black History Month ceremony honoring her husband’s legacy, Rockeymoore Cummings said he worked with ghostwriter James Dale for nearly a year on the book and it was 95% complete when Cummings died in October.

The Democrat, 68, had a rare form of cancer known as thymic carcinoma.
