CBCF to Host Historic Swearing-In Ceremony

Fifty-five Members Represent Largest for Congressional Black Caucus

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc. (CBCF) will host a ceremonial swearing-in for current and newly-elected Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) members of the 116th Congress on Thursday, Jan. 3 during which a milestone of unprecedented proportion will be achieved.

History will be made when the 55 members take the oath of office — the largest ever since the founding of the nonpartisan group in 1971 with a core of 13 elected “freedom fighters.” The event, which begins at 9 a.m. at The Warner Theatre in Northwest, will honor the legacy of the CBC and mark the installation of its new and re-elected members.

Program participants will include: Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, board chair, CBCF; Dr. Elsie L. Scott, interim president/CEO, CBCF; Congressman Cedric Richmond, chair, CBC; and Congresswoman Karen Bass, chair-elect, CBC. The ceremonial swearing-in, open to families and guests of the CBC members, has been attended by congressional leadership and leading nonprofit, civic and business leaders in previous years.
