It is with deep regret that Avoice announces the passing of Ofield Dukes at age 79. Mr. Dukes played a major role in African-American legislative history. He was a huge supporter of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and encouraged its mission to develop leaders, impact policy, and educate the public. Most notably, he assisted in organizing the first Congressional Black Caucus Dinner and served on the board of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation for 14 years. The spirit that Ofield Dukes possessed and his insight and commitment to the CBCF will surely be missed.
