As I’m at store.kamalaharris.org trying to figure out which long sleeve tee to buy, I’ve been thinking about why her candidacy is so important and meaningful to me. I’ll share 😀 #thread #Khive #ForThePeople
We are Sorors, pledged at the same time (Spring 1986, Alpha Chapter at Howard for her, Nu Alpha at Emory for me). Obviously sisters of the same mind there. I trust her judgment!
💕💚 #AKA1908 💕💚
#Kamala reminds me so much of the promise of #AKA1908, the focus on service. When I heard her say yesterday at #LJ19 that the 1st words she spoke in court were “Kamala Harris, For The People...” it was just electrifying, because she is sincere. #KHive
She makes me think of other Sorors who have done remarkable things because...they need to be done! Soror Dorothy Boulding Ferebee comes to mind.

She Can Bring Us Home: Dr. Dorothy Boulding Ferebee, Civil Rights Pioneer by Diane Kiesel Diane Kiesel m.barnesandnoble.com/w/she-can-brin…
This is a woman who graduated from medical school and decided to open a clinic in an underserved DC community and THEN went on to serve as Director of the Mississippi Health Project, a service project of #AKA1908
Dr. Ferebee, took road trips from DC to Mississippi in the 1930s with her Sorors in order to make sure that healthcare was available to poor Black people! This is the lineage of service that @kamalaharris comes from. #KHive #ForThePeople
I’m sure Dr. Ferebee had a fun social life, can imagine her in furs & pearls all over DC! The social part of being in the sorority is what I saw when #Kamala was stepping w/kids in Iowa! The multidimensional we can walk AND chew gum part of being a Black woman, on full display
I mention Dr. Ferebee for a few reasons. 1. I’ve read her bio, was truly inspired. 2. Black Greeks often get maligned for being elitist but we were founded as service orgs, first & foremost. 3. She was sincere about who she was & how powerful she could be, in service. #AKA1908
A fundamental ? for those who have become successful: What service can you provide w/ opportunity you’ve been afforded? Dr. Ferebee provided healthcare to people who were ignored, #Kamala served as a dynamic prosecutor, helping victims of crime have a powerful voice #ForThePeople
So I’m excited for her candidacy & proud to support her! I’m thankful for her energy, her determination, the commitment to service. #Kamala is a wonderful example of where we come from & where we can go, w/the right attitude, preparation & support. secure.actblue.com/donate/kdh-gra… #Khive
I’m in, hope that you’ll join me in supporting @kamalaharris for President! Thanks Soror, for continuing to uphold our dedication to service and doing what needs to be done. #AKA1908 #Khive #ForThePeople KamalaHarris.org
