Congresswoman Williams says everything on the line in fight for voting rights
Georgia Congresswoman Nikema Williams says at a news conference by the Congressional Black Caucus on race and democracy that it would not be the last time that they stood fighting for the same freedoms that generations before have already fought, that the reintroduced Freedom To Vote Act was a response to counter the coordinated and tense efforts across the country to roll back the most basic foundations of a free society, the sacred right to vote, knowing that Black and brown voters will suffer the most under a failed status quo, so the Caucus is committed to protecting voting rights across the country.

U.S. House Representative George Miller (D-CA), in office, says that he voted for the Congressional Black Caucus budget because its premise was about the programs important to Americans - children, education, elderly - were right, and it took priority away from "extravagant military spending". Cokie Roberts speaking with Rep. Miller; Roberts (vo) notes that Rep. Miller's district is 48 percent African American. Rep. Shirley Chisholm (D-NY), in office, says that the offhand dismissal of the CBC budget was a matter of racism, and thinks there a belief that only white men are capable of compiling documents or discussing philosophy. Black leaders are only expected to talk about welfare or food Stamps, and their exhaustive research on putting together a comprehensive economic document is dismissed. VS of CBC meeting; Roberts (o/s) states the CBC's desire to expand past the civil rights agenda to be effective legislators, and become a voting bloc with the ability to block legislation.

U.S House Representative Shirley Chisholm, speaking to Paul Duke at her office, reflecting on 23 year career in politics, and the need to have a private life, spend more time with family. Duke states that if she stayed in office, she could become the head of the powerful House Rules Committee, to which she replies that would require "sitting back and waiting patiently" for many more years, she won't do it; wait for power to come to her. Duke asks whether to many burdens or responsibilities are placed on members of Congress today. Rep. Chisholm thinks there's no question about it. The public expects a lot from members of Congress, but it's part of the job. Duke asks whether she gets more complaints from her constituents about the economy. Rep. Chisholm says that is the main concern and that nine out of ten times she's asked if she can find someone a job. Duke asks Rep. Chisholm how she wants to be remembered. She wants to be remembered as someone who really tried hard, helped people.
