Joe Biden chooses Kamala Harris as running mate

Senator Harris is the first black woman on a presidential ticket in US history
The US Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, has selected the California Senator, Kamala Harris, as his running mate for November's election.  Ms Harris is the first black woman on a major presidential ticket in US history.

Suzan Johnson Cook worked on both Barack Obama's and Hillary Clinton's campaigns. So what does this moment mean to her as a black woman? 

"It shows that black women have strength and we're not taken for granted... we will roll up our sleeves even more."
