Vice President Kamala Harris’ historic Africa trip to Ghana, Tanzania, and Zambia may be over, but the economic and cultural legacy will be felt for years to come.
The trip comes just as the U.S. is resetting its relationship with the continent. In August, the White House released a new U.S.-Africa strategy followed by the fanfare of the U.S.-African Leaders Summit in December, where 49 African heads of state convened in Washington.
