  • Ha rappresentato lo stato del Mississippi come senatore del partito repubblicano dal 1875 al 1881 ed è stato il primo afroamericano a restare al senato per tutta la durata della carica. Hiram Rhodes Revels, anch'egli del Mississippi, era stato il primo in assoluto ad entrare al Congresso degli Stati Uniti d'America, ma senza rimanere per l'intera durata del mandato. Nel 2002 Molefi Kete Asante ha inserito Blanche Bruce nella sua lista dei 100 più grandi afroamericani.
