Founded initially in January 1969 as the Democratic Select Committee, the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) is a caucus made up of most of the African-American members of the United States Congress. The National Bar Association (NBA) is proud to annually host its NBA Congressional Black Caucus Reception scheduled for Thursday, September 16, 2021, at the City Winery in the Nation’s Capital.

During the annual reception, the NBA provides special recognition to legislators whose work champions the mission of the NBA. Additionally, this year NBA President Carlos Moore is proud to honor more than members of Congress. This year’s award recipients include a senior member of the Biden Administration, the Mayor of Washington, D.C., the “Hero Capitol Police Officer” on the frontlines during the January 6 Capitol Attack, a renowned political journalist, and a corporate philanthropist.



This year, those deserving awardees are:
 

The Honorable Cedric Richmond - Presidential Distinguished Service Award
 

Senator Cory Booker - Presidential Distinguished Service Award
 

Congressman Hakeem Jeffries - Presidential Distinguished Service Award
 

The Honorable Joyce Beatty - Presidential Outstanding Leadership Award
 

The Honorable Muriel Bowser - Presidential Outstanding Leadership Award
 

Officer Eugene Goodman - Presidential Black Excellence Award
 

April Ryan - Presidential Black Excellence Award
 

Dee Brown - The P3 Group - Presidential Outstanding Corporate Philanthropy Award

According to NBA President Carlos Moore, “The NBA has a vested interest in ensuring our laws are crafted with Black people in mind and once enacted, carried out justly. The NBA has always valued its relationship with the CBC due to its capacity to assist the NBA with carrying out the organization’s mission both generally, as well as through its nationwide legislative objectives. I am proud to lead the charge as the NBA honors legislators and others across America who have exhibited great leadership and personified Black excellence. We applaud the work of the CBC and congratulate this year’s award recipients.”
