Black delegates attending the Florida State Democratic Party Convention in 1981 in Hollywood, Florida were alerted to the need for increasing the power and influence of Black Democrats within the party. A decision was made at the Convention to unite Black Democrats throughout the State. That resulted in the organization of the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida. History was made on September 24, 1983, when the Florida Democratic Party recognized the Democratic Black Caucus of Florida as an official affiliate organization
