  • Tracee Ellis Ross, star of Black-ish and Girlfriends, hosted the  second night of Democratic National Convention.
  • For  her opening remarks, the actress said tonight’s program is “all about leadership” and mused on the historic nature of Kamala Harris’s nomination for vice president.

Following an opening keynote address from the party’s rising stars, the Black-ish actress and Emmy nominee kicked off the night with a speech about the importance of leadership and Kamala Harris’s nomination for vice president.

“Tonight is all about leadership,” Ross began. “This unprecedented moment calls for leadership. Steady, inclusive leadership. Driven by people who understand that our democracy is based on the value of each and every one of us being treated with dignity and respect. Leaders who respond to the needs of hard-working Americans who, right this minute, are unable to pay rent, put food on the table, and keep their loved ones safe.

“As a Black woman, I find myself at a crucial intersection in American politics. For far too long, Black female leadership has been utilized without being acknowledged or valued. But, we are turning the tide. Hello, Kamala.”
