HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — Vice President Kamala Harris will be in Hampton this Friday.

It’s unclear at this time who Harris will meet with, but an announcement from the White House on Wednesday said more information would follow.

It could be to visit Hampton University for HBCU Week, which celebrates historically Black colleges and universities. Harris, who graduated from Howard University, tweeted about HBCU Week earlier this week.

On Wednesday, President Biden announced he plans to appoint Dr. Tony Allen, president of Delaware State University, as the chair of the President’s Board of Advisors on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).

Drivers should expect delays around the Peninsula on Friday due to the vice president’s visit.
