Senator Kamala Harris will make history when she takes office as the first vice president of the United States in January, but she is not the only black woman who has stood out in the vibrant electoral cycle that the country is experiencing.

In her first speech after the Democratic election victory, the first black woman of Asian descent to become vice president-elect of the United States recognized the work of one group in particular: minority women.

Senator Harris exclaimed, “I’m thinking of the generations of women who fought and sacrificed so much for equality, freedom and justice for all, including black women who are often ignored, but also often prove that they are the backbone of our democracy“.

In her speech last Saturday, Kamala Harris recognized the work of black women in mobilizing the vote.

On the outskirts of Atlanta, the Georgia state capital, members of the Hunt family cried as they listened to Harris’s speech Saturday night.
