On Saturday, Sen. Kamala Harris became the first woman, the first Black person, and the first person of South Asian heritage to be elected vice president
For millions of people around the country, it was a huge moment.
Black women reflected on what this moment means to them.
"I can barely believe I am typing this. You don’t know what this means to me and every single black girl out there."
"How exciting that young black girls will finally be able to see someone who looks like themselves as VP for the first time in history."
Many paid respect to Black women leaders who paved the way, like Shirley Chisholm, the first Black woman elected to Congress.
Plus more people in history who helped make this moment possible.
"The daughter of an Indian immigrant woman is Vice President of the United States. I didn’t think that would happen in my life time."
Many women thought of their daughters.
"My daughter said 'Mom, that can be me.' Lawd I am so full."
"Our young girls are beaming with pride as they see someone who looks like them in one of the most powerful positions in the World. This is a historic moment for all women of color but especially black girls. We matter and we are worthy."
