2019 Congressional Black Caucus will be biggest ever

The 2018 mid-term election have added a number of African Americans to the United States Congress and in turn more members to the Congressional Black Caucus.

The newcomers to Congress will include nine more African-American members. With turnovers, the CBC is expected to have a record 54 members in the next Congress, four times as many as in 1971 when 13 Congress members formed the Caucus.

As a result, the CBC, which includes two senators, will rank among the largest caucuses in Congress.
