CBC Is Where Politics Meet Culture! 

The CBC (Congressional Black Caucus) is the first and most prominent African American political group established in Congress!

Its inception came on the heels of the Civil Rights Movement in 1969. Shirley Anita St. Hill Chisholm, a founding member of The Caucus and the first African-American woman elected to Congress, attempted to meet then-President Richard Nixon with her peers. Nixon refused, prompting The Caucus to boycott the soon-to-be impeached President’s televised State of The Union Address. It was a courageous act that garnered media attention.

Nixon’s initial response backfired, and a change of heart quickly ensued. The Caucus met with Richard Nixon and discussed Black politics!

For the first time, Congress had a group of unapologetically Black members in The House. Eradicating racism, providing quality housing, and promoting engagement of African Americans in government were all on the table.

Although racism persists, radical changes to abort it within the American Government were made possible by The CBC. In its 51 years, President Obama and Current Vice President Kamala Harris are the only Caucus members to ascend to The White House.

The Annual Legislative Conference is a historical extension of the CBC legacy. It is also where culture, politics, and events meet! Over 10,000 Black Professionals are expected in “Chocolate City” for the CBCF 51st Annual Conference. Attendees will have hundreds of event experiences awaiting them. We enjoyed highlighting some of them with our Official CBC Weekend Event Guide!
