According to the Los Angeles Times, Kamala Harris’s road to the White House began amid the sequins, satin gowns and crystal chandeliers of a ballroom in the capital city of South Carolina. As she made her debut on the presidential campaign trail Friday night before 3,700 partygoers at the city’s annual Pink Ice Gala.

Some say it was no coincidence Harris chose this state to make her initial appearance. Nor was the locale an accident: the annual bash thrown by Alpha Kappa Alpha, the nation’s first sorority founded by African Americans, which Harris pledged as a student at Howard University.


“When we look at where we are at this moment in the history of this country, I think our founders gave us the right charge,” the senator said of the 111-year-old sorority’s community service mission. “We are all here because we stand on other people’s shoulders. My mother taught us long ago, she would say to me, ‘Kamala you may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last.’ ”


What are your thoughts about Kamala Harris run for presidency in 2020?
