Congressional Black Caucus: 55 Strong


The Congressional Black Caucus of the 116th Congress, the largest ever in its 48-year history with 55 members, is billing itself as a powerful “course corrector” that will consistently fight for justice and against wrongs of the Trump Administration. Rep Karen Bass assumed the gavel from former CBC Chairman Cedric Richmond (D-La.) before a standing-room-only audience of hundreds who not only celebrated the historic growth of the CBC with nine freshman members, but many of whom also celebrated the new Democratic majority, now 235-199.Chairwoman Bass is also supported by new CBC executive committee. They are First Vice Chair Joyce Beatty (D-Ohio); Second Vice Chair Brenda Lawrence (D-Mich.); Secretary Hank Johnson (D-Ga.); CBC Whip A. Donald McEachin (D-Va.); Parliamentarian Steven Hartford (D-Calif.) and members at large, Dwight Evans (D-Pa.) and Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.).
