Vice President Harris: A new chapter opens in US politics

WASHINGTON – For more than two centuries, the top ranks of American power have been dominated by men — almost all of them white. That ends on Wednesday.Kamala Harris will become the first female vice president — and the first Black woman and person of South Asian descent to hold the role.

Her rise is historic in any context, another moment when a stubborn boundary will fall away, expanding the idea of what's possible in American politics. But it's particularly meaningful because Harris will be taking office at a moment of deep consequence, with Americans grappling over the role of institutional racism and confronting a pandemic that has disproportionately devastated Black and brown communities.
