HOUSTON – Women across the Houston area and the U.S. are sporting Converse Chuck Taylor or “Chuck” shoes and pearls Wednesday as a nod to Kamala Harris, who was sworn in as the nation’s vice president.
Harris is often seen in pearl necklaces during her appearances, which holds a special meaning. It represents her sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, where she was a part of during her time at Howard University, according to People Magazine.
Many women took to social media to showcase photos of their pearls and their colorful Converse shoes as a sign that history had been made for women, regardless of political party.
Here’s what they shared:
