Karine Jean-Pierre becomes first black woman to host daily White House press briefing in three decades

Karine Jean-Pierre, a veteran of politics, activism and media on Wednesday became the second Black woman in history to hold the daily White House press briefing and the first Black woman in 30 years. She also makes history as the first openly gay person to address reporters on behalf of the US president.

“It’s a real honor to be standing here today. I appreciate the historic nature, I really do, but I believe that being behind this podium, being in this room, being in this building is not about one person. It’s about what we do on behalf of the American people.”

“Clearly the president believes that representation matters, and I appreciate him giving me this opportunity, and it’s another reason why I think we are all so proud that this is the most diverse administration in history.” She added.

Born in Martinique to Haitian immigrants, Jean-Pierre was a former senior adviser to Biden’s campaign and later served as chief of staff to Kamala Harris.

Prior to that, Jean-Pierre worked for former President Barack Obama’s and Martin O’Malley’s presidential campaigns and served as a political analyst for NBC and MSNBC, CNN reports
