The Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference took place in Washington, DC this weekend and politicians, celebrities, influencers, newsmakers, scholars and voters alike gathered for what’s best described as a party with a purpose.

More than 10,000 people converge on the Nation’s Capital for panel discussions, symposiums, economic development sessions, networking gatherings, various parties, Hollywood screenings, an awards dinner and other various events.
