Group Description

On January 15, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority became the first Greek-letter organization established in the United States by and for Black women. Her roots date back to Howard University, Washington, DC, where the idea of 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, the function of Alpha Kappa Alpha has become more complex. After her incorporation as a perpetual body on January 29, 1913, Alpha Kappa Alpha gradually branched out and became the channel through which selected college-trained women improved the social and economic conditions in their city, state, nation and the world.

Today, that tradition has continued--internationally, nationally and locally. Alpha Kappa Alpha cultivates and encourages high scholastic and ethical standards; promotes unity and friendship among college women; alleviates problems concerning girls and women; maintains a progressive interest in college life; and serves all mankind through a nucleus of more than 140,000 women in over 860 chapters.

Today, That tradition continues here in Nassau, Bahamas through the Eta Psi Omega Chapter. Sorors are carrying on the legacy of our Founders and making a difference in our community.

Ladies of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. - Eta Psi Omega Chapter, Welcome to our Chapter's Yahoo Group.
