The 2020 Democratic National Convention came to a close Thursday night after a week of various daytime video meetings, videos, musical performances and primetime speeches from some of the country’s most notable celebrities and politicians. 

Former Vice President Joe Biden closed out the program by accepting the party’s presidential nomination Thursday night while California Sen. Kamala Harris accepted the vice presidential bid on Wednesday night.

In the following pages are five highlights from this week’s convention.
