Region XI

Black history is embedded throughout all of the Washington, D. C. metropolitan area.  We historically ventured in music with the likes of Duke Ellington, enriched our neighborhoods with the home of Frederick Douglas , and worked in a city designed by Benjamin Banneker.  The Washington Monument Mall, in front of the Lincoln Memorial was where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave his famous “I Have A Dream” speech.   Since the mid 1800’s, blacks have contributed significantly towards drafting many of the laws written on Capitol Hill and still manage to leave an excellent heritage for our children and the future.

      The Retired Members Chapter (RMC) was established under the jurisdiction of Blacks In Government’s Region XI to provide professional support to Black Federal, State, and Local retired Government employees in the Washington,  D. C. Metropolitan area and our local community.
