Kamala Harris Officially Becomes First Black Woman To Be A Major Party’s Vice Presidential Nominee, Watch Her Full Speech

Last night (August 19th), Kamala Harris gave a compelling speech on Day 3 of the Democratic National Convention. The California senator also made history becoming the first Black and South Asian woman to accept a major party’s vice presidential nomination.

This year, the three day event was held virtually.

During the democratic vice president nominee’s speech, she touched on racism (speaking on George Floyd and Breonna Taylor’s deaths specifically), along with the current coronavirus pandemic and the struggling economic crisis that the country faces.

See her speech below.

As previously reported, Kamala Harris ran for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination and attracted national attention before ending her campaign on December 3, 2019.
