Many people in the country celebrate Joe Biden's election of Kamala Harris as his comrade in arms, making the California senator potentially the first black woman to serve as vice president of the United States. In light of this historic moment, BET BLACK AMERICA VOTES: The VP Choice will air, a news special profiling Harris and unpacking the impact of her candidacy on the election and American politics.
Michelle Miller, co-host of CBS This Morning Saturday, will host the special, which will air live on BET and BET Her this Sunday, August 16 at 7:00 p.m. ET. An all-female group of guests will include elected officials, activists and other thought leaders in the black community.
Harris is overshadowed by Rep. Shirley Chisholm, the first black woman elected to Congress to win the Democratic nomination for president. He'll be an excellent partner for Biden as the two prepare for what is likely to be an epic battle against the Trump ticket.
