REPRESENTING OUR COMMUNITY SINCE 1975.
Although operational since 1973, the S.C. Legislative Black Caucus formally organized in 1975. At that time, the Caucus adopted the motto “Like limbs we reach toward the sun, but feed from a common root” to reflect its unity and purpose.
A Message From The Chairman
In the spirit of civic service, I greet you on behalf of the South Carolina Legislative Black Caucus. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support of our efforts. Be assured that the members of the SC Legislative Black Caucus do not take our responsibilities as Legislators lightly. We remain steadfast in our fight for better education, quality healthcare, increased jobs, fair housing, and environmental justice. We are dedicated to our constant quest to be treated with dignity and respect. Inequality is still present in South Carolina, and racism remains at the root of many of these problems. However, we in South Carolina need never lose focus of our responsibility as a people to “get our house in order.”
As members of the Caucus, we continue to work to that end. The 2018-2020 Caucus consists of forty-four (44) members of the South Carolina General Assembly (13 in the Senate and 31 in the House). We are still faced with a disadvantaged population of all ages, religions, and races. The men and women of the Caucus continue to utilize all available resources in their efforts to improve the quality of life for all South Carolinians.
Obama Care Testimonials
Three years ago my daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. Although we are fully covered by insurance, her medical bills skyrocketed to over 2 million dollars. She was able to receive a revolutionary surgery that cured her disease, yet she will have to take very expensive pills before each meal for the rest of her life. – James S.
I work full time but I only make $8.75 per hour. I am not able to afford healthcare through my job. As a divorced mom, the majority of my pay goes towards daycare. I am also a college student. My parents were able to add me to their insurance so now I am fully covered for the next 2 years. – AD Perkinson
