On April 5, 2011, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation and Howard University joined forces to organize a day-long symposium celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Congressional Black Caucus. This day of reflection and exploration brought together people from around the country to discuss the CBC’s past struggles and triumphs and look forward to the role of the Caucus in the future.
As part of the day, CBCF’s Avoice project asked current and former CBC members, CBCF leaders and Howard University faculty to compose letters of tribute honoring the late Dr. Ronald Walters’ for his legacy as an influential force in the development of the CBC and as a distinguished scholar, political advisor and commentator, professor, author and mentor. This touching collection is now a part of CBCF’s Avoice archives.
