Vice President Kamala Harris talks to Maryland residents on COVID vaccine, stimulus at Black History Month event

March 1, 2021

Vice President Kamala Harris spoke to hundreds of Anne Arundel and Prince George’s County residents Saturday as she joined Rep. Steny Hoyer’s 40th Annual Black History Month Celebration, the first time in its 40 years the event was held online. Harris represents a litany of firsts: She is the first woman, Black person and Asian-American to serve as vice president, but “not the last,” she said. The annual gathering, in previous years held as a breakfast for residents of the 4th and 5th congressional districts, has long featured prominent Black Americans, including former President Barack Obama when he was a senator, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the late Rep. John Lewis.
