WatchTheYard.com was just submitted this rare photograph from John F Kennedy’s days as a US senator in the 1960s. The photo was taken at Howard University at an American Council on Human Rights workshop and features national officers of all four Divine 9 sororities.
It is interesting to note that many of the women would later go on to do major things for their sororities. Dr. Lorraine A. Williams of Sigma Gamma Rho for example, would go on to be the 9th & 12th International Grand Basileus of her sorority and 1st African-American female Vice President for Academic Affairs at Howard University.
The caption below the image states:
“WHEN PARTIES MEET — All was pleasant when Mrs. Marjorie Parker, a prominent Washington Republican gives a double hand-clasp to Senator John F. Kennedy, Democratic Presidential Candidate, at the American Council on Human Rights workshop held at Howard University. Other Sorors greeting the Senator and Mrs. Kennedy are (from left to right) Mrs. Dorothy Proctor, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority; Dr. Lorraine Williams, Sigma Gamma Rho; Dr. Nancy McGee, Zeta Phi Beta; Mrs. Parker, Alpha Kappa Alpha and National president of the American Council on Human Rights.”
