In The Headlines:
Yes to Black Girl Magic! The selection of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden’s vice-presidential running mate is bigger than an individual choice.

This is not just a victory for Kamala Harris. Ms.Harris is the embodiment of the growing political power of Black women to make demands within the corridors of power, and the political sophistication to ensure that those demands are met.

It is not just about this one Black woman and her success. The selection is a win for all women of colour who have higher political ambitions, Black women operatives who want to have more say in how campaigns are run, and Black women voters who want to see themselves among the many candidates the party fields every election.

When asked on what she wanted her daughter to know she said,"what's important for my daughter to know is that, if you are fortunate to have opportunity, it is your duty to make sure other people have those opportunities as well."

Who run the world? Girls!
