by Kamala D. Harris
The results of the presidential election are now acknowledged by most Americans, and for the first time a woman of color was on the winning ticket! Kamala Harris, the daughter of an economist from Jamaica and a cancer researcher from India who met as civil rights activists at Berkeley, was California’s first African-American senator, and is now smashing through several glass ceilings to become Vice President. Her book conveys the welcome vision of shared struggle, shared purpose, and shared values for Americans. It traces the author’s life and political views and accomplishments.
