Kamala Harris’ presidential logo is nod to first black woman who ran for president
Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., has already made history. And with the launch of her 2020 presidential campaign, she pays homage to a political trailblazer who came before her — almost exactly 47 years ago this week.
Her logo pays tribute to Shirley Chisholm, the first black candidate who vied for a major party’s presidential nomination when she sought the Democratic Party’s nod in 1972. She was the first woman to seek the Democratic Party’s nomination as well.
