Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® had its humble beginnings as the dream of Ethel Hedgeman, a co-ed at Howard University. Along with eight other students, she worked to create a support network for women with like minds to come together for the mutual uplift and benefit of others. In 1908, her vision became a reality as Alpha Kappa Alpha became the first African-American Greek-letter sorority. Cultural awareness and social advocacy marked Alpha Kappa Alpha’s infancy.
