The Congressional Black Caucus

47 years ago in our Nation's Capitol, ​the CBC was founded. This alliance of Black Congressmen and Black US Senators aligned to promote those policies essential to the growth of people of color in this nation. Today I celebrate the founding by going back another 44 years as a reread Congressman Walter Fauntroy's keynote speech at the NAACP's National Convention in New Orleans related to tax reform. Understanding​ that past history defines today's history if we can only take the time to comprehend it. It is my hope that Congressman Fauntroy has reached a place of mental peace today because he surely deserves it.
