LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Since the very founding of this nation, American history had a significant role in shaping attitudes toward Black women.

Mainstream culture helped tell a tale of Black women entangled in anger, aggression and complexity.

For decades, many Black women grappled with their identity by society's standard of beauty.


For generations, Black women have been held down and held back by systemic racism in the workplace.

While the weight most Black women carry has yet to be lifted, many say hope is near, as the first female and first Black and South Asian vice president takes office.

"Vice President Harris is a visual representation of some of the dreams we are chasing and now we can finally see someone who chased their dream and look how far she came," Elisheba Moore, school counselor said.
