Key Moments from the Inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris
President Joe Biden was sworn in today as the 46th President of the United States. Alongside him, Vice President Kamala Harris has made history as the first Black woman and first woman of Asian descent to hold the second-highest office in our country.
President Biden and his administration will have a lot on their plate once today’s ceremonies are over. The COVID-19 pandemic, rising unemployment rates, and the growing threat of climate change are just a few of the crises that the new president will have to confront.
Joining The Takeaway to discuss are Robin Givhan, Washington Post’s senior critic-at-large, Laura Barron-Lopez, national political reporter at POLITICO, and Dr. Kellie Carter Jackson, historian and professor in the Department of Africana Studies at Wellesley College.
