Women To Celebrate Harris With ‘Pearls And Chucks’ Tomorrow
In advance of tomorrow, #ChucksAndPearls has started trending on Twitter and a private Facebook group, called “Chucks and Pearls Day, January 20th, 2021,”currently counts close to 70,000 members.
For years, reporters have noted Kamala Harris' fondness for pearls. Many women in politics favor pearls, but Harris wears them for a special reason. When she accepted the Democratic vice-presidential nomination, with a strand of South Sea pearls around her neck, Harris thanked the family she was born into and the family she found in her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA). AKA is one of the nation's oldest Black sororities with notable members such as Maya Angelou, Coretta Scott King and Rosa Parks. The sorority's founders and incorporators are referred to as the "twenty pearls," and today, pearls represent solidarity between the sisters.
