Sens. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), the only African-American members of the United States Senate, participated Monday in a bipartisan discussion in honor of Black History Month, following votes on the Senate floor.

The discussion, which was live-streamed on Harris’s Facebook page and moderated by U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black, touched on issues such as diversity at both the member and staff levels, economic opportunities for African-Americans, and a recognition of African-American leaders of both past and present.
