Kamala Harris’ Victory Speech Shouted Out Black Women & It’s Inspirational AF

The election results were called on Saturday, Nov. 7, following Pennsylvania’s announcement that former Vice President Joe Biden won the state’s vote. As Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-California) celebrate, they’re both looking to the future of the country. On the evening of Nov. 7, Kamala Harris’ speech after winning the 2020 election shows just how excited she is to implement change after the hardships of the coronavirus pandemic and racial inequality.

Harris spoke to supporters at Biden headquaraters in Wilmington, Delaware, on Saturday night. She opened up with a quote, saying, "Congressman John Lewis, before his passing, wrote, ‘Democracy is not a state, it is an act.’ And what he meant is that America’s democracy is not guaranteed. Its only as strong as our willingness to fight for it."

Harris has made history as the first woman, the first Black person, and first South Asian American person to be elected vice president of the United States, while Biden also shared in a historic moment as he beat the record number of votes President Barack Obama received in the 2008 election with over 70 million votes.

Harris’ first tweet after the election news dropped was a video of various scenes in the country and a Ray Charles version of "America the Beautiful." Her caption read, "This election is about so much more than [Joe Biden] or me. It’s about the soul of America and our willingness to fight for it. We have a lot of work ahead of us. Let’s get started."
