Keke Palmer Hosts Inauguration Day Program for Children
It’s Inauguration Day! U.S. Senator Kamala Harris will make history today when she is sworn in as the first woman and woman of color Vice President of the United States! However, the Biden-Harris team is making history in other ways, as well.
For the first time in history, a special just-for-children Inauguration Day program will be livestreamed from Washington, DC, at 10 a.m.!
“Inaugurations are one of the most important American traditions,” soon-to-be first lady Dr. Jill Biden shared in a video posted to the Biden Inaugural Instagram account. “And this year, for the first time ever, we’re streaming a special live broadcast made for students and families across the country. Our White House: An Inaugural Celebration for Young Americans.”
As KeKe Palmer hosts the Inauguration Day program, there will be plenty of special guests! Today reports there will be commentary from historians Doris Kearns Goodwin and Erica Armstrong Dunbar, as well as excerpts of student voices from PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs’ “We the Young People” programming.
The schedule of today’s events have not been shared, but highlights for the program include a Nickelodeon-produced segment on presidential pets and trivia questions from Vice President elect-Harris’ husband, Doug Emhoff! Tune in today!
