Couldn’t let today pass without showing some love to all the women in my life who are the pretty girls that wear 20 pearls and proudly wear the salmon pink and apple green color of Alpha kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Those women include my mother and sister. There were more than a few times I had to drive her to her sorority meetings and read her Ivy Leaf magazines when she was done with them.
As the first sorority created by and for African American women back on the Howard University campus on January 15, 1908, they have grown from that campus to become a worldwide organization of over 200,000 college educated women.
AKA women have and continue to blaze trails in a variety of professional fields from business, medicine, science, education, sports, the media and politics as they role model their ‘Service to All Mankind’ sorority motto.
Happy Founders’ Day Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.!
