Kamala Harris' purple Inauguration Day outfit may have been a nod to the first Black woman to run for president
Kamala Harris made history on January 20 when she became the United States' first female, Black, and Asian American vice president.
During the historic inauguration, she wore a bright purple dress and coat.
The color purple has several possible meanings, including symbolizing bipartisanship and paying homage to the suffragette movement, according to Insider's Amanda Krause.
Chisholm famously wore purple during her presidential campaign, according to Newsweek.
Harris has been known to draw inspiration from Chisholm, such as using a color scheme similar to Chisholm for her presidential campaign logo.
On January 16, Harris officially acknowledged the influence Chisholm has had on her political career, tweeting "Shirley Chisholm created a path for me and for so many others."
