History of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Alpha Kappa Alpha (ΑΚΑ) is the first Greek-lettered sorority established and incorporated by African American college women. The sorority was founded on January 15, 1908, at Howard University in Washington, D.C., by a group of nine students, led by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle. Forming a sorority broke barriers for African American women in areas where little power or authority existed due to a lack of opportunities for minorities and women in the early 20th century.
Alpha Kappa Alpha was incorporated on January 29, 1913.
