Black members of the US Congress on Tuesday made scarves and ties out of traditional Kente fabric, which originated from Ghana, as they attended President Donald Trump‘s first State of the Union address.
The address is given once every year, except on the first year of a president’s term, and usually on a Tuesday.
The wearing of the Kente was according to Representative Alma Adams to “honor the countries POTUS proclaimed ‘s—holes’ last week.”
The female representatives were also clad in black in support of the #MeToo movement.
