Celebs and Politicos Hit Up Congressional Black Caucus Week 2012

It was a star studded week during the 42nd Annual Legislative Conference held by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation. And while there were plenty of informative seminars, sessions and panels, The Fab Empire kept their eye on the celebrities walking around the convention center and hitting up parties all over the District.

From Chris Tucker attending this year’s Phoenix Awards Gala to Dwayne Wade hitting up the Author’s Pavilion touting his new book on fatherhood, this year’s Congressional Black Caucus Week was filled with the glitterati.

Michelle Williams lent her voice to a panel early during the week.
R&B singer Musiq Soulchild was spotted inside the convention center and even stopped to take pics with fans.
