Kamala Harris, an attorney at law who has Jamaican roots, was recently sworn in as California’s newest senator.

On Tuesday (November 8, 2016 ), California voters elected Kamala Harris, to the US Senate, breaking a colour barrier that has stood for as long as California statehood.

Harris, who has a Jamaican father and an Indian mother has now become the first black politician in history to represent California in the Senate and only the second black woman in the nation’s history to serve in Congress’ upper chamber.

She soundly beat her rival – fellow Democrat Loretta Sanchez for the open Senate seat.

Harris was officially sworn in on January 3 in front of family and friends.
