The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) was founded in 1971 by a group of African American members of Congress who sought to address the unique needs and concerns of their constituents. The CBC was formed during a time of great social and political upheaval in America, as the Civil Rights Movement was still in full swing and African Americans were fighting for equal rights and representation.
The CBC has since become a powerful force in American politics, advocating for policies that promote social justice, economic equality, and civil rights for all Americans. The caucus has been instrumental in passing legislation that has had a significant impact on the lives of African Americans, including the Voting Rights Act, the Fair Housing Act, and the Civil Rights Act.
Over the years, the CBC has grown in size and influence, and today it is one of the most powerful and respected caucuses in Congress. Its members continue to fight for the rights and interests of African Americans and other marginalized communities, and they remain committed to building a more just and equitable society for all Americans.
