The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation recently hosted the 10th annual Avoice Heritage Celebration at the Eaton Hotel in D.C.

The event — “Roots, Return, Remembrance: The Congressional Black Caucus and the Black Agenda” —highlighted the five U.S. House committee chairs from the CBC (Reps. Maxine Waters, Eddie Bernice Johnson, Bobby Scott, Bennie Thompson and Elijah Cummings) as well as Rep. Karen Bass, CBC chair.

The event also marked the 10th anniversary of Avoice, the CBCF’s online repository that captures the legislative and political achievements of African Americans in Congress.

To commemorate the anniversary, CBCF produced a short film, “Who I AM,” which focuses on the compelling stories and powerful committees currently chaired by CBC members.
