In 2008, Barbie® released a special edition Alpha Kappa Alpha doll for the AKA centennial celebration. Ever since, there has been a small online movement to make Barbies for all of the other D9 sororities and it is growing steadily.

We at WatchTheYard.com love to see that there are dolls out there for little girls to play with that encourage them to go to college and which look like the very women they aspire to be. We would, however, love to see some dolls made which reflect a wider range of Black female body types, but we do understand that this is a step in the right direction.

Would you buy one of these for your child/niece/god daughter? Let us know in the comment section below!

This Alpha Kappa Alpha Member is Making History by Opening the First Chick-fil-A in Downtown Los Angeles

Ashley Derby, a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and Spelman graduate, made history in 2011 when she became the youngest African-American female franchise owner in the history of Chick-fil-A at 26 years old. She making history again by bringing the franchise to downtown Los Angeles.

Derby is an Atlanta native who started working at Chick-fil-A as a teenager to save money for a car. She stuck with the company through her undergrad years at Spelman. Because of her boss’ advice, Derby switched her major to focus on economics and applied for leadership roles at the restaurant.
