A Circle of Sisters Perpetually Purposed for Service
Starting November 7, 2016, the Alpha Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. was founded in 1929 by Dallas native and Howard University graduate, Mrs. Florence Harllee Phelps. Alpha Kappa Alpha has the distinction of being the country’s first Greek letter sorority for African American women. The exhibit provides decade-by-decade details of the sorority’s emphasis on high scholastic and ethical standards, promotion of unity and friendship among college women, community service, and social action initiatives.
