Today is the Alpha Kappa Alpha Founders Day for 2010 as the sorority was established on January 15 1908.

The Alpha Kappa Alpha was the first Greek-lettered sorority that was established and incorporated by African American college women at Howard University in Washington. It was considered a breakthrough for African American women at the time as they had little opportunity or authority in the early twentieth century.

The Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority was eventually incorporated on January 29 1913.

Today, over 250,000 women of all descent are part of the Alpha Kappa Alpha, with over 900 chapters in the US and in other countries around the world. Woman can join when they are an undergraduate or through a graduate chapter.

Members take part in community service, education programs, health programs and social and political matters in the community.
