Via Al Sharpton Twitter page: I’m in South Africa headed to the Global Citizen Festival with Congressional Black Caucus members Greg Meeks, Barbara Lee, Bobby Rush & Hank Johnson & my @MSNBC colleague Joy Reid. #GlobalCitizenFestivalSA
Five members of the Congressional Black Caucus took a $60,000 trip to see Beyoncé in concert in South Africa late last year.
Beyonce and several other stars performed in concert at the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert from Dec. 1-3 according to FOX News.
The lawmakers were U.S. Reps. Gregory Meeks of New York, Barbara Lee of California, Bobby Rush of Illinois, Terri Sewell of Alabama and Hank Johnson of Georgia, according to the data.
They attended the “Global Citizen Mandela 100” concert from Dec. 1-3 to celebrate the centenary birth of the late Nelson Mandela and raise awareness of global poverty. In addition to Beyoncé, other musical acts included her husband Jay Z, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell Williams and Chris Martin.
One-third of the Congressional Black Caucus members have been named in an ethics probe during their career.
