Biographical/Historical Note

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated began as the vision of nine college students on the campus of Howard University. The sorority has grown into a union of thousands of college-trained women who are bound by a powerful mystique, a real moving factor in the lives of students in more than four hundred institutions of higher learning. It is one of the most solvent corporations in the world today. As Alpha Kappa Alpha has grown, it has kept in balance two very important themes: the importance of the individual and strength of an organization of women of courage and ability. As the world became more complex, there was a need for associations which cut across racial, geographical, political, physical and social barriers.
