Richard Vernard Agee (November 24, 1935) is an American public servant and politician that served as the 48th Vice President of the United States from 2001 until 2009. He was also the first African-American to hold the office. Prior to that he served for thirty years in the House of Representatives from 1971 until 2001.

Agee was born into a family of labor organizers, and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps before serving on the Berkeley, California, City Council. Agee was the first African American elected to Congress from Northern California and its first openly socialist successful non-incumbent Congressional candidate since World War II. His politics earned him a place on President Nixon's enemies list.

During his career in Congress, he fought the MX Missile project, which put him at odds with President Pearson and opposed expansion of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber program. In 1994, he lead a Democratically-controlled House and a Republican-controlled Senate to override a bill proposed by President Morgan to expand the military. The first presidential override of the 20th century.
