          History-making tour to be a part
          of milestone anniversary event



          Washington, DC -- The Divine Literary Tour will bring exciting
          authors to this city as part of the celebration surrounding the
          100th anniversary of
          Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.


          The Divine Literary Tour is a first-of-its-kind tour of
          authors coming together to promote literacy, unity and
          the diversity on the
          African-American literary landscape.

          The Divine Literary Tour includes both nonfiction
          and fiction authors, as well as poets.


          Authors who will be a part of the D.C. festivities
          include Bern Nadette Stanis, who played Thelma
          on CBS' 'Good Times', award winner Thomas
          Brooks and performance poet Marc Lacy.

          Other authors include Latasha Hines,
          Richard James, Dr. Gregory Parks,
          Trice Hickman, LaShon Williams,
          Dr. Wendy Coakley-Thompson,
          Fred Williams, Rhonda Lawson,
          Monique Miller and Sylvester Lee.


          The Divine Literary Tour will be at the Alpha Kappa Alpha
          Centennial Celebration at the Washington Convention
          Center daily, today through July 17, at booth 731.

          Authors will autograph their books
          and answer readers' questions.

          Alpha Kappa Alpha is the oldest historically- black sorority in
          the United States, and celebrates 100 years of service in a
          weeklong D.C. celebration that will include a range of events.


          The Divine Literary Tour, founded in 2005, includes members of the
          black Greek organizations, including Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

          In addition to celebrating authors, the tour
          raises money for scholarships to support needy
          but deserving students who want a higher education.
