Chronicled: Who Is Kamala Harris?

By San Francisco Chronicle
She was raised in Berkeley by civil rights activists and became politically active during anti-Apartheid protests at Howard University. Then she turned a career as a prosecutor into being one of the most progressive members of the Senate.
