On the heels of our 66th Boule celebration, another oh-so-pretty and oh-so-sophistAKAted soror has been inducted into our illustrious sisterhood.
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc announces one of its newest honorary members, Ms. Ava Marie DuVernay, filmmaker and trailblazer!
International President, Soror Carolyn House Stewart explained Ms. DuVernay’s selection, “Through her creativity, trailblazing work in film, and her passion towards her craft, Ava DuVernay embodies the Alpha Kappa Alpha ideal. Most of all, through her work, she serves the worldwide community. This commitment is captured in Alpha Kappa Alpha’s credo: ‘Providing service to all mankind.’”
