The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, in partnership with TV One, a ceremonial swearing-in of the caucus of the 117th United States Congress will air on the cable channel next month.

The event will air at 4 p.m. on Jan. 3 and feature remarks from CBC and congressional leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Reps. Steny Hoyer, Cedric Richmond, James Clyburn, Karen Bass, the outgoing CBC chair, and Joyce Beatty, Bass’ successor, the foundation said Monday.

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will also speak.

“We are proud to partner with TV One to broadcast this historic event, marking the 50th anniversary of the Congressional Black Caucus,” said CBCF President and CEO Tonya Veasey. “TV One has been a long-standing partner of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, and we celebrate their contribution to help us bring this event to households nationwide during these unprecedented times.”
