Alpha Kappa Alpha: A Serious Matter for 107 Years

i Jan 15th 2 Comments by

Today, Alpha Kappa Alpha women across the world are celebrating 107 years of sisterhood and service to all mankind.

Founders' Day 2015

Alpha Kappa Alpha was founded on January 15, 1908, on the campus of Howard University. The intimate group of women who founded our organization, just one generation removed from slavery, realized that they were in a pivotal position by being college trained women of color. It was the desire of the group that their college experience would be meaningful and productive.

107 years later, the vision of our founders is alive and well! The service programs of our organization through the years have been relevant and effective in meeting needs of our global society. Under our current international program initiative, Launching New Dimensions of Service, Alpha Kappa Alpha women around the world are implementing innovative and essential service projects that address the needs of our youth, family health, and global concerns.

As we take time to reflect on our legacy of 107 years of sisterhood and service, we ask that you take a few moments to reminisce with our chapter and international organization by visiting and After you’ve had the opportunity to peruse our websites, please take a moment to think about how you can render service to your local and global community.
