Kamala Harris: Quotes to Live By is a life-affirming collection of over 150 quotes from one of the world's most admired, relevant and exciting public figures today. As the daughter of immigrant parents from India and Jamaica, she rose to become district attorney of San Francisco, attorney general of California, United States senator and finally to achieve the pinnacle of all her firsts: the first female Black and Asian-American Vice President of the United States.

Her support for Black Lives Matter and women's rights, as well as healthcare and immigration, along with her courage and determination, has made her a powerful force in politics and on the world stage.
