Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. Celebrates 40th Anniversary
In 1976, the Congressional Black Caucus was still in its infancy — just five years old. And there were only 18 members, a few more than when it was founded. But even then, the group's members had already demonstrated their ability and determination to get Washington to pay attention to their causes.
A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated announced Thursday the theme and honorary co-chairs for the 45th Annual Legislative Conference, scheduled Sept. 16-20 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in D.C.
