Remembering HUD’s Robert C Weaver, First Black Presidential Cabinet Member – The pink report news

the first African American cabinet member, making Robert C.
Weaver (above) head of the Department of Housing and Urban

national housing policy and enforces fair housing laws.

In keeping with his vision for a Great Society, Johnson sought
