Recently, Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden announced that Sen. Kamala D. Harris will be his running mate for the 2020 Presidential election. This highly anticipated declaration comes after many months of discussion of who would be the best fit for VP on a Biden ticket for the presidency. Sen. Harris is the first Black woman to ever run as Vice President in our nation’s history.
With our country experiencing an uprising against racism this summer, her bid for Vice President opens up a conversation on the implications of diversity and representation in this country. Sen. Harris is a Black woman who graduated from Howard University in 1986. With her VP run, she carries in her many identities that shape this country and will inspire the next generation to come.
