Congratulations to Karine Jean-Pierre, the first ever black Chief of Staff to ever be appointed to Vice Presidential candidate.
The Haitian-American powerhouse was recently selected by Joe Biden to serve as his senior advisor on his 2020 Presidential campaign and has moved up to a position never held before by any Black person.
Before joining Biden’s team earlier this year, Karine Jean-Pierre was chief public affairs officer for MoveOn and also worked on both Obama presidential campaigns. She was also a regional political director in the Obama White House.
The announcement of Jean-Pierre’s new role was made prior to Joe Biden finally declaring that Kamala Harris will be his running mate.
Jean-Pierre would make a great Chief of Staff to Kamala Harris. Not solely based on her extensive experience but because she also publicly showed she would physically jump in to defend Harris.
Jean-Pierre, was born in Martinique to Haitian immigrant parents and raised in Queens, New York.
She is a graduate of Columbia University and the author of Moving Forward; A Story of Hope, Hard Work and the Promise of America.
Congrats Karine – you deserve all good things. Go forth and sprinkle your black girl magic!
