It’s set to be a historic night three of the Democratic National Convention.

Senator Kamala Harris will give her speech as the first woman of color to be a vice presidential nominee.

“The Biden/Harris ticket is about an agenda, that is about representing who america really is,” Senator Harris said.

Aug. 19 is jam-packed with appearances by heavy-hitters, and fellow politicians who know what it’s like to “be the first” including Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, and the first woman to be a major party nominee for president in 2016.

“I want to add my voice to the many that have endorsed you to be our president,” Hillary said, “and of course, former President Barack Obama, the country’s first Black president, who chose Joe Biden as his own vice president 12 years ago.”

Barack Obama went on to say,”Joe Biden won’t only make a good vice president..he’ll make a great vice president.”

He’ll make the case that his former running mate and Harris are the ones to move America forward.

“This is going to an administration, the Biden/ Harris Administration that is focused on the future of our country,” Kamala said. “Motivated by what can be, and unburdened by what has been.”
