California Senator Kamala Harris has no Kenyan roots. She is an United States politician and lawyer serving as the junior United States senator from California since 2017.


The 55-year-old is a member of the Democratic Party.

She is the first African American and the first Asian American to be chosen as the running mate of a major party's presidential candidate.
 
 

Harris was born and raised in Oakland, California where her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, was a breast-cancer scientist who had emigrated from Tamil Nadu, India in 1960 to pursue a doctorate in endocrinology at UC Berkeley.


Her father, Donald Harris, is a Stanford University emeritus professor of economics, who emigrated from British Jamaica in 1961 for graduate study in economics at UC Berkeley.
