Conghressional Black Caucus Foundation: The Fourth of July

The Fourth of July is celebrated as the anniversary of American independence in 1776. In 1852, Frederick Douglass asked, “Are the great principles of political freedom and of natural justice, embodied in that Declaration of Independence, extended to us?” And, to this day, not all Americans are free to realize the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Today and always, the CBCF acknowledges the birth of the nation many Black Americans call home. We also acknowledge the ongoing fight for the unalienable rights of the global Black community. 

May you have a safe and healthy day and beyond as the mission goes on.
