Celebrations Erupt Across U.S. Cities

(Saturday, November 7, 2020) – Horns blaring, streets filled with dancing and singing, and sheer jubilation.  These were the signs spilling out on city streets across the country from Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Wilmington, Delaware just to name a few.

As news outlets projected Joe Biden as the winner of the 2020 presidential race Saturday morning, streets began to fill-up with people celebrating the win they had been waiting to hear since Tuesday.  At Black Lives Matter Plaza in DC, it was a moment of pride beaming from persons from all races and walks of life.  Kimberly Wilson from Waldorf, Maryland was one of thousands of people who packed the area donning a Biden and Kamala Harris t-shirt.  “This is the place to be. I came down here with my best friend.  We just wanted to be as close to the moment as possible.  We are being safe wearing our masks so we feel like we can be a part of history.”

Wilson’s sentiments were echoed by so many in people who have been waiting for hours to hear from their candidate.  “I’m going to come here everyday even for a few moments until Donald Trump leaves the White House.  I have been frustrated for four-years and now I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders,” said William Height.

Biden and Harris are set to deliver their victory speeches tonight.
