Today, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. celebrates its 109th anniversary.
In celebration of 109 years of existence, the Supreme Basileus of the sorority, Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson, released a video to the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha where she openly talked about the sorority’s rich past and it’s grand plans for the future.
“These 16 women, just one generation out of slavery, envisioned the world where every man, woman and child had equal access to healthcare, housing, proper nutrition, education and civil rights,” she says, while reflecting on the founders of the sorority during the video. “The same call that galvanized young women to be of “Service to all Mankind” remains as strong today as it did on that cold January day in 109 years ago.”
We at Watch The Yard love this video and think that leaders of Black greek organizations doing video messages like this is very important in this digital world that we live in today. We commend the women of Alpha Kappa Alpha for their work and “Service to all Mankind.”
Watch the full video below.
