Sens. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the only African-American members of the United States Senate, participated Monday in a bipartisan discussion in honor of Black History Month, following votes on the Senate floor.
The discussion, which was live-streamed on Harris’s Facebook page and moderated by U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black, touched on issues such as diversity at both the member and staff levels, economic opportunities for African-Americans, and a recognition of African-American leaders of both past and present.
Sitting down with Senators Cory Booker and Tim Scott to talk about the Black leaders who inspire us, how we can increase economic opportunities for African-Americans and how we can include more diversity in our own workplace, the United States Senate. Join us! #BHM
