The Congressional Black Caucus

The Congressional Black Caucus
Racial Politics in the US Congress

October 1997 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The history and influence of the Congressional Black Caucus is the theme of this book. The author demonstrates that the organization has successfully articulated the concerns of African Americans, but has only had a marginal impact on public policy. He shows that the increased membership of the Caucus has added considerable internal obstacles to the ever present external obstacles which have always constrained their power.
