Join the party for our sister, Madame Vice President Kamala Harris
We did it! Kamala Devi Harris is our vice president as of Wednesday. We broke down walls and shattered not one, or two, but three ceilings. No matter what lies ahead, we, and she, made history. I say we, because without the massive, and fiercely dedicated efforts of so many of us, especially Black women, who have waited for what seems like an eternity for this change to come, it wouldn’t have happened at all. In spite of ugly forces lined up against us, our victory can never be erased.
In my heart, I see her mom, Shyamala Gopalan, smiling, seated at a roundtable with Shirley Chisholm, Fannie Lou Hamer, Barbara Jordan, and Ida B. Wells. The founding sisters of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority are circled behind them.
I want to give a special shout out to members of the K-Hive, and of the DK-Hive here at Daily Kos—Kamala’s fierce defenders, who were with her from the beginning of her journey, have had her back from day one, and will continue to do so. So this #BlackMusicSunday, we’re having a party for Kamala, and for us all. Join the celebration!
