On Nov 6, 2020, Joe Biden was chosen as the 46 president in America. Kamala Harris, a black south Asian-American, was elected as the first woman to be the US Vice President. Her victory will inspire woman and woman of colour for years to come.
As a descendant of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, Kamala Harris opens a new chapter of black history in America. In 1913, the National Women’s Party wore white as one of the colors as a symbol of purity. Therefore, she was wearing a suffragette white pantsuit when she presents herself in front of the crowd. Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton who both participated in the presidential race before also wore white pantsuits. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People believes that the political power of blacks and their contributions to shaping nation, communities, and culture have been overlooked, and in which black women have been at the head of leading their communities together toward greater representation and unity.
