Women Of Alpha Kappa Alpha You Should Know

An amazing moment in history, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was founded on Wednesday, January 15, 1908. The sorority has cultivated thousands of women into shining stars and has helped build up countless communities. The principles that lay the foundation for the sorority are used to build women into someone that’s unstoppable and that can take over the world, while simultaneously uniting women as one. Women of all walks of life are Alpha Kappa Alpha members: teachers, movie stars, directors, etc. and they effortlessly excel in all of them.

Today marks the 112th year of excellence for Alpha Kappa Alpha. Not only is Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated the first Black sorority but it’s also my sorority. I’m a proud member, and today I celebrate my sisterhood by familiarizing you all with some of my sisters who are killing it!

I’m grateful AF. Growing up as the only child to a single mom, I was incredibly lonely. I literally talked to myself and I REALLY thought Lisa Turtle, Rudy Huxtable, and Kelly Taylor were my real life friends. Lame, I know. 🤦🏾‍♀️ As I grew up and formed deep friendships with women, I remain incredibly grateful for my relationships with women. Through a difficult adolescence, stressful collegiate experience, turbulent career journey, failed marriage, and maternal estrangement….the women in my inner circle have held me DOWN. I threw a Pretty Powerful Champagne reception to celebrate women. Specifically, themes of sisterhood, women’s empowerment, anti-mean girl movements, and womanly peer-mentorship. @angelayee (one of my peer mentors) graciously moderated a conversation that highlighted femininity as strength, and the REQUIREMENT of more than one of us occupying a particular space at the same time. There are a million white men in every industry…why do we as women (and black women in particular) subscribe to the belief that there can only be “one” of us at a time???!! Times up on that shit and I rebuke it in His name🙏🏾. We poured out our insecurities (don’t get started on what my momma said about my edges🙄) and conclud
ed the night affirming how women, especially when we collaborate, are collectively positioned to win on EVERY level. I wrote #PrettyPowerful as my love letter to women. Today, I’m grateful AF to support, hire, learn from, be raised by, mentor to, be sponsor to, be sponsored by, in friendship with, and ultimately in sisterhood with…women❤️Special thanks to the queens that worked to put this evening together @gjpmedia @habituallyhilari @lynzchristiantv @eboneetravels @joijoi22 @ashleyssweettreatsinc #PrettyPowerful #tbt👯‍♀️#womenshistorymonth #sisterhood #OnlyChildWhere? #womenhelpingwomen 📸 @chuckmarcus
