59th Inauguration Shows America Being United as the First Black Woman Becomes Vice President
America has seen true darkness; the COVID-19 outbreak catapulted the nation into a new way of operation, with many lives lost. The escalated climate during the leadership of the 45th president, Donald Trump, coupled with unjust behavior fueled by racism, created a hemorrhage in the country’s unity and applied pressure to a new awareness around the minds of society.
However, there is a new light leading America; one that touches a new precipice, as the nation witnesses Kamala Harris, the first Black and South Asian woman take an oath as Vice President on Wednesday, January 20. The 59th Inauguration had an air of division, but due to Kamala Harris’ presence, there is a beacon that is signaling equality and unity that will guide monumental steps into a new day in America.
