WASHINGTON—Nineteen college students returned from a trip to China last week, as part of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Incorporated (CBCF) Emerging Leaders: US-China Study Abroad Program. The group, called Marcia L. Fudge Inaugural Cohort, visited Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai and studied Chinese history, Mandarin, business and politics for two weeks.
"This cohort exemplifies the CBCF's mission to expand the reach and opportunities for African Americans globally," said A. Shuanise Washington, president and chief executive officer of CBCF. "Our hope is that this initiative will increase African-American interest in building relationships, careers and study opportunities between the two countries."
