Rep.

Elijah Cummings will lie in state on Thursday at the US Capitol building.

Business Insider says he will be the first black lawmaker to receive the honor.

Rosa Parks, a figure of the civil rights movement, received a similar honor for private citizens when she died in 2005.

Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell will speak at the arrival ceremony on Thursday.

Members of the public will be allowed to pay their respects to Cummings later in the day.
