Alpha Kappa Alpha Marks its Centennial Year

AKA Tribute Video

Illustrious Sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA) is the first college-educated, primarily African-American female organization to reach this 100-year milestone.

The Alpha Birthday Celebration is the first of two major celebrations to take place during its Centennial year. More than 25,000 members will converge upon Washington, D.C. for its Centennial International Conference from July 12-18. At that time, more tributes and commemorations will take place. The sorority will use the week to engage in a series of meetings, plenaries and "conversations" about how to deal with today's pressing issues while charting a course for the Sorority as it enters its second millennium.

Led by its Centennial International President, Barbara A. McKinzie, whose administration's theme is: ESP, which stands for Economics, Service and Partnerships. Alpha Kappa Alpha is one of the world's leading service organizations. The sorority's members have made a commitment "to serve all mankind" through a nucleus of more than 200,000 women in over 975 chapters in the United States, the Caribbean, Canada, Germany, Korea, Japan and in the continent of Africa.
