Event description
Join the Guardian’s Kenya Evelyn and a panel of experts as they explore Kamala Harris's historic achievement—and the expectations she faces.

About this Event

Harris is poised to become the first woman, the first Black person and the first person of Asian descent to be inaugurated as vice-president of the US. As she steps into the White House, millions of voters responsible for her win are asking challenging questions: will she emerge as a brave and powerful voice for the nation’s most vulnerable? Or will her embrace of the political center limit her impact?

While voters of color turned out in record numbers to support the Biden-Harris ticket, some progressives feel conflicted about Harris’s past. As a California prosecutor, she enforced the rules of a US criminal justice system that unfairly targets minority groups.

Looking ahead to the next four years, the panel - including Pulitzer Prize-winning cultural critic Margo Jefferson, Guardian columnist and lawyer Malaika Jabali and Guardian West Coast political reporter Maanvi Singh - will discuss the opportunities Harris will have to drive policy change and inspire a new generation of leadership, and the hopes, obstacles and anxieties that accompany her rise to vice-president.
