Kamala Harris: DIVINE NINE in the news

The Divine Nine must be very happy this afternoon since AKA sister Kamala Harris has been named Joe Bidenís VP running mate. MSNBC anchor Brian Williams mentioned her membership and the fierce support of her sisters and then Congressman Clyburn from SC brought up the coast-to-coast support she will receive from all of the Divine Nine.

Itís exciting to see Greek organizations mentioned in a positive light on national TV!

This is awesome news! I hope the Today Show has (fellow AKA) Sheinelle Jones interview Kamala, with one wearing pink and one wearing green!

One of the other women under consideration for the V.P. pick, Keisha Lance Bottoms, is a DST.

(When’s the last time a member of a GLO was in the White House? George H.W. Bush? DKE)

George W. Bush is also a DKE (isn't he?), so I reckon he would be the last one.

Yes 43 is a DKE alumni.

During this time, he was a cheerleader and a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon, serving as the president of the fraternity during his senior year. Bush became a member of the Skull and Bones society as a senior.

Brooke Baldwin on CNN is interviewing AKA Shirley Jackson Lee and they are discussing at length Alpha Kappa Alpha, their sisters who are leaders in public service and their push for voter registration.
You can feel the pride.

I believe there are 7 or 8 AKAs in Congress and Senate currently.
