About The Village

The Village – Real people. Real talk.

The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Inc.’s official blog, The Village, is an online community dedicated to exploring issues facing African Americans and the Diaspora.* Our community of bloggers, otherwise known as Village Ambassadors, are educators, members of law enforcement, college students, and concerned people, who share their diverse perspectives on public policy, pop culture, news and other issues impacting black people around the world.

The Village is a place where you can count on real talk from real people. A circle of trust where we can speak candidly about the real issues affecting our lives.

We invite you to share your thoughts! Interact with us in the comment section and share The Village with your networks! Blog posts are published on The Village each Monday and Thursday.

If you would like to contribute to The Village as a Village Ambassador, please contact us at TheVillage@cbcfinc.org.
