List of Alpha Kappa Alpha sisters

The list of Alpha Kappa Alpha sisters (commonly referred to as "AKAs"cite web |url=http://aka1908.com/centennial/pdf/quickfacts_pdf.pdf | format=PDF| title=AKA Quick Facts |publisher=Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated| format=PDF |accessdate=2007-05-09] ) includes initiated and honorary members of Alpha Kappa Alpha (ΆKΆ), the first inter-collegiate Greek-letter sorority established for Black college women.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority was founded on January 15, 1908, at Howard University in Washington, D.C., by nine women who were known as "The Original Group of 1908", and seven sophomores, who were accepted as honor initiates and are known as "The Sophomores of 1910".Ross Jr., "The Divine Nine", p. 166.] The leadership the original sixteen exhibited in setting up the sorority has created social and economic capital for over one hundred years. [Tamara L. Brown, Gregory Parks, Clarenda M. Phillips, "African American Fraternities and Sororities: The Legacy and the Vision". Lexington: University Press of Kentucky, 2005. p. 342.] Alpha Kappa Alpha serves the community through a membership of more than 200,000 women in over 950 chapters in the United States and several other countries. Membership is extended to female college undergraduate and graduate students. The sorority also bestows honorary membership as the highest honor.cite web |url=http://aka1908.org/present/membership/ |title=AKA Membership Profile |publisher=aka1908.org |accessdate=2006-10-02]

Alpha Kappa Alpha states that since the organization's founding, "the sisterhood of Alpha Kappa Alpha has responded to the world's increasing complexity. The sorority continues to empower communities through exemplary service initiatives and progressive programs."cite web |url=http://aka1908.com |title=AKA Home Page |publisher=aka1908.com |accessdate=2007-12-10] The sorority celebrated a centennial anniversary on January 15, 2008.cite web
