The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF) will commemorate Black History Month 2014 by hosting its fifth annual Avoice Heritage Celebration from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., February 26th, at The Hamilton, 600 14th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20005.
The 2014 Black History Month theme is “Civil Rights in America.” The story of civil rights in the United States is one that encompasses the struggle of freedom, justice and equality for all. This Black History month we salute the tireless efforts made to pave the way forward for future generations. As we mark the 50th Anniversary of the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, we invite you to read more on the contributions of African Americans to legislative history.
This year, the Avoice Heritage Celebration will honor a former CBC member and two organizations for their work in preserving African-American legislative history, for their commitment to cultivating minority civic engagement, public discourse on African-American history, and the preservation of important historic artifacts through philanthropic or programmatic support.
