  • Description: In 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority became America's first Greek-letter organization established by Black college women. Her roots date back to Howard University, Washington, D.C., where the idea for 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 by providing mental stimulation through interaction with friends and associates. Through the years, however, Alpha Kappa Alpha's function has become more complex. After her incorporation as a perpetual body in 1913, Alpha Kappa Alpha gradually branched out and became the channel through which selected college-trained women improved the socioeconomic conditions in their city, state, nation, and the world. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is to encourage high scholastic and ethical standards; to promote unity and friendship among college women; to alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve the social stature, to maintain a progressive interest in college life, and to be of service to ALL mankind.
