From the Paper:"The Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is an organization designed to maximize the collective influence of Black members of Congress.. The CBC was formed during the first Nixon Administration in 1971 in response to that Administration's apparent indifference to issues important to Black Americans and to suggestions from Black members of Congress on how best to address those issues.. Prior to the formation of the CBC, Black members of Congress had twice been denied access to President Nixon for the purpose of discussing the effects on Black Americans of administration policies and actions."
