Breathing Through History

With fireworks in London, bells ringing in Paris, and Americans dancing in the streets of Philadelphia, Chicago, and  Los Angeles, many are breathing a sigh of relief – the election for the American President is over. The celebrations are momentous but momentary as the pandemic still roars through the world.  But, for now, many of us can stop holding our breath.

The Luckiest Man by Mark Salter and The Red and the Blue by Steve Kornacki

And with Kamala Harris now the first woman in the White House, artist Kara Walker came to attention with her silhouette of the first Black and Indian Vice President elect.
