University Press returns with another short and captivating portrait of one of history’s most compelling figures, Kamala Harris.
Kamala Harris was born in California to a Tamil mother from India and a black father from Jamaica. She grew up singing in the choir at a Baptist church and attending a Hindu temple with her mother. She is now happily married to a Jewish lawyer. As the District Attorney of San Francisco and as the Attorney General of California she gained a “tough on crime” reputation while opposing the death penalty. Much to the chagrin of her critics, Harris has been defying stereotypes since the very beginning.
Born in Oakland to a brainy, academic family, Harris became a lawyer, worked for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, was elected District Attorney of San Francisco, was elected Attorney General of California, won election to the United States Senate, ran for President of the United States, and, in 2020, was chosen by Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to be his vice-presidential running mate.
This short book tells the intensely human story of a woman who is changing the world in a way that no one else can.
