A Brief History

  • On January 15, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. became the first Greek-lettered organization established by and for college educated women of African descent. Alpha Kappa Alpha promotes the importance of the individual and the value of organizing women of ability and courage. Its membership is comprised of distinguished women who boast excellent academic records, proven leadership skills, and are involved in the global community through advocacy and service.

  • Alpha Kappa Alpha's formation was conceived by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle of St. Louis, Missouri. She viewed the sorority as an instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life through scholarship and mental stimulation, through interaction with friends in sisterhood, and through stewardship of the community in service. Lyle was later joined by Beulah Burke, Lillie Burke, Margaret Flagg Holmes, Marjorie Hill, Lucy Diggs Slowe, Marie Woolfolk Taylor, Anna Easter Brown, and Lavinia Norman. Together, these nine women named the sorority's first committees and offices. In February of 1908,  seven sophomores were admitted. Those members were Joanna Berry, Norma Boyd, Ethel Jones, Sarah Merriweather, Alice Murray, Carrie Snowden, and Harriett Terry.


The Most Dynamic Mu Delta Chapter


  • The Most Dynamic Mu Delta Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was chartered on March 11, 1978 at The George Washington University in Washington, DC by 13 women of distinction. The idea originated from an interest group called AKABA, which is Swahili for fertility and grace. Of the 14 members of AKABA, 13 became Mu Delta's charter members. With many hardworking, energetic, and intelligent members throughout the years, Mu Delta has proven to be an outstanding chapter.
