Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is poised to accept her party’s historic election to be its vice-presidential candidate as Democrats hold the third and penultimate night of their virtual convention.
The address by Harris, who will be the first Black lady and the first Asian American to appear on a major-party ticket, belongs to a two-hour schedule loaded with other celebration luminaries– the majority of them ladies.
