The New York Times published an article sharing the thoughts and reactions of Black women following the announcement of Kamala Harris as the vice-presidential pick on a national presidential ticket. Harris would be “the first Black woman, the first Indian-American woman, the first daughter of immigrants, the first graduate of a historically Black college, [and] the first member of an African-American sorority” to be included on a national presidential ticket. In the NYTimes article, Professor Moya Bailey (Cultures, Societies, and Global Studies and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies) gave her own perspective on this announcement. She states that, “It is going to be a long road to the White House” and shares her thoughts on how this campaign will bring up the disregard for Black women in the country.
