AKA Sorority To Celebrate 105th Anniversary In Baltimore

BALTIMORE (AP) — Hundreds of members of Alpha Kappa Alpha, a historically African-American college sorority, are celebrating the group’s 105th anniversary in Baltimore this weekend.

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, herself a member of the sorority, plans to participate in some of the events.

The celebration includes community service projects planned for different schools and food banks as well as a panel discussion on human trafficking.

Alpha Kappa Alpha began in 1908 on the campus of Howard University as the vision of nine women. It now includes thousands of members.
