In honor of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Foundation’s 50th year of servitude to the Black community, we interviewed 5 of its representatives, four of whom are currently serving districts across the United States.
Congresswoman Yvette Clarke from New York’s 9th Congressional District joins Rev Yearwood and inspires the next generation as she speaks to young Black women. “We do our part in lifting up and lifting up not only our community, but by extension, all of humanity, because we have been treated with the lack of respect for our dignity as human beings. So let’s stay in the struggle sis. Let’s show that we are human beings with dignity and we are powerful and awesome, because when we make up our mind, we make things happen. And I’m excited to be a part of the sisterhood that’s making things happen.”
