Biden, CBC Loyalists Populate DNC At-Large Delegate Seats

On a cool, festive night in the Jeep lined parking lot of the Westin Hotel in Wilmington then President-elect Biden thanked the black community for their support and committed to having their backs, just as they had his. After keeping a string of policy promises – enacting a historic child tax credit, lifting families out of poverty and investing in HBCUs President Biden has turned his attention to black political empowerment. Earlier this month, Democratic National Committee members voted to approve a slate of 75 Biden nominees to serve as at-large members that have been put forward by Chair Jaime Harrison. The vote took place in a virtual meeting placing long time Biden allies, and CBC loyalists in the national democratic body.

Harvard (15-11 overall) freshmen Volleyball player Christina Cornelius became the Rookie of the Year for Division I Women’s Volleyball in the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC) last Thursday. This honor came a week after Cornelius earned a spot on the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-East Region teams. “I was really shocked, I had no idea that I was up for this,” said Cornelius. “It was amazing and I just really feel blessed to be able to get all this recognition.” Cornelius’ performance made her Ivy League Rookie of the Year and a member of the All-Ivy League first team.
