"HOW TO LOVE A WOMAN OF ALPHA KAPPA ALPHA"

Once a man walked,
A man turned,
and saw that woman,
something more extraordinary
than the Rest...
She seemed to be
A woman of Culture.
Perhaps a poem or two
or a Sweet word would do.
Then he saw her Merit;
Honesty begets me;
Could it be that
I cannot run game
On a lady such as thee?
He noticed the colors
of her salmon pink and apple green.
Could it be that love
had struck it's cord
in his heart?
She walked with a strut
of attitude that was outstanding,
more than regular attitude...
It was AKAtude.
He looked over at her 20 Pearls,
and realized that this woman
was more than money or flash;
She was a woman of her community,
A leader not a follower.
How can I make this woman mine?
First let go of your ignorance, and
learn the ways of 1908.
Second be willing to build
upon a serious mind,
as well as a serious
stand of a woman.
Third make yourself
humble for her presence,
because she is a first and
will never settle for second.
To gain these things,
And make this woman yours,
listen you
Alphas, Kappas, Ques, Sigmas, and yes, Iotas too,
You must be willing to learn about the daughters of merit and culture
and learn to transcend, for this women don't like brothers who skate on their responses.
Be real in order to gain this AKA,
for she is 1908, thru and true.

"Alphas, Kappas, Sigmas, Ques,
the Pink and Green you can't refuse!
AKA you can't deny,
that's why you stare when we walk by."

"Not conceited, just convinced,
we're the best that there is!
Nineteen- O- Eight
AKA made it great!

Alpha Kappa Alpha Mystique

    Beauty unparalleled, grace undefined,
    An Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman is one of a kind.
   She walks in a room with her head held high,
Acknowledgement of her presence is an awe-filled gaze or admiring sigh.
  The Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman is regal and profound. 
She is the essence of feminism and these qualities abound.
The Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman is honorable and oh so unique.
All of these qualities culminated, create the
Alpha Kappa Alpha Mystique

 

 

 

 
  AKA...and ??
 
In 1908, Soror Lyle wanted to make things better
So she created an organization
Where black women could come together
Shoot, I don't know about you,
But I think that was pretty clever.
 
It started in Miner Hall
When the ivy was on the wall
These women's talents were tall
And our Beloved Splendid Sixteen
Took on the challenge... held it to high esteem.
 
The four incorporators 
Were the real innovators
Made sure the dream could continue
After that, there could only be imitators.
 
That  AKA dream
Had us standing tall
It's been over 90 years
With all the work we've done, is that all??
 
We have many more miles to go.
More dreams to create.
More services to do
More goals to make
 
Sorors!!! We're gonna be 100 in 2008 !!!
So keep the tradition alive, RE-ACTIVATE!!!
 
We, ladies of AKA have style, elegance
And so much flair.
We do our work with grace, class
And lots of care.
 
We don't settle for less
We go for the top... the very best.
We surpass all the rest.
If you don't know, put US to the test!!!
 
So if anyone asks you
Girl, why do you look so grand?
Why do you walk so tall?
Why are YOU in high demand?
 
You just say ...
I'm an  AKA... and??

This is a serious matter, since 1908,
we're those sexy, fine girls you try to imitate.
When we walk in a room, you all stop and stare,
we feel sorry for you haters, we're not going anywhere!

In 1906, 7 young men from Cornell
Shared a vision that could never fail.
Their vision was made a reality
Creating for all others, an opportunity.
The first Black Greek organization was created.
A brotherhood never to be duplicated.
A selective union, allowing only a certain type of man.
An ALPHA man strong, intelligent and proud
That type of man who stands out in a crowd.
Emphasizing service and unity
A model which others would soon see.
They were the founding fathers who led the way
And then from Alpha came AKA.
Created by 16 precious pearls
1908 was the year of the pretty girls.
The first Black Greek sorority
Holding true values of unity,
Scholarship, and service to all mankind.
The model woman for all womankind.
With this the first family is now complete
Accept the truth and bow before our feet.
Don't deny your history, for it is the truth
You should never deny me, you MUST respect your roots.
I am your mother.
I am your father.
I am

 

 

History of Alpha Kappa Alpha

Alpha Kappa Alpha women all over the world
proudly wearing their precious 20 pearls.

AKA, they founded January 15, 1908
at Howard University on that historic date.

Women called together by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle
chose pink and green their colors, a lot of class,
 a lot of style.

Women providing service to an outstanding ideal
through friendship, sisterhood and love so real.

Women blessed by God above, in friendship and love
in a sorority as precious and peaceful as the white dove.

Women, by culture and by merit too,
 who strive to do their best
through high standards, moral character, a lot of zeal
Women with strength and endurance like the
Green Ivy Leaf
promote the goals of service and sisterhood in our great sorority.

Women like the rose unfolding in shadows of
pink and green,
demonstrate fine characteristics of womanhood serene.

Women in the Virgin Islands, The Bahamas, Germany, Korea, Bermuda, England, and the USA
are working together in service and sisterhood the Alpha Kappa Alpha Way.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Women all over the world

INSPIRATION

YOU LOOK AT ME AND SMILE
BUT DO YOU KNOW WHY?
YOU STARE AT ME IN WONDER
BECAUSE YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND- HOW???

I'VE SCRATCHED AND I'VE BLED
BUT STILL MANAGED TO MATCH
YOUR SKILL, INTELLECT, GRACE-
HAVE SURPASSED YOU AS A MATTER OF FACT!

YOU HAVE NOTHING ON ME
BECAUSE I HAVE COME TOO FAR
NOT COUNTING GOD'S BLESSINGS
BY THE NUMBER OF RINGS OR FANCY CARS

BUT MINE IS A DIGNITY
THAT RINGS FAR MORE CLEARLY AND TRUE
ONE THAT OTHERS ATTEMPT TO EMULATE
BUT CAN NEVER SEEM TO DO

I'VE BEEN CALLED BY MANY NAMES
ALL MEANT TO HURT AND DEMEAN
YOU MAY SAY WHAT YOU'D LIKE
BUT ON THIS EARTH - I AM THE ORIGINAL QUEEN

NOW, DON'T GET ME WRONG
I'M NOT THE ARROGANT SORT
BUT YOU WANTED TO PLAY GAMES, I'LL LAND ON MY FEET
NOW THE BALL IS IN YOUR COURT

BUT DON'T THINK IT WILL BE EASY
THIS ANNIHILATION YOU PLAN TO ENSUE
I'VE BEEN HERE SINCE...'08...
NOW, WHAT ABOUT YOUUUU???

Founder's Day

Once upon a time in 1908
A determined young lady,
Established something so abundantly great.
The foundation was sisterhood,
and the goal service to all mankind
Brilliant things have come about,
since these two have intertwined.
All around the world,
deserving young ladies represent the unlimited possibilties,
of this illustrious establishment.
It's a shame, it's not recognized, every single day
the founding of Alpha Kappa Alpha,
 the one that's paved the way.
