JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – History was made when Kamala Harris was sworn into the office of Vice President on January 20, 2021. She’s the first female Vice President in out nations history.
This piece of history means a little bit more to the African American community. Not just because Vice President Kamala Harris is black, but because she’s walked the same footsteps of many, like Miss Jackson State University, Daisia Davis.
The first black female Vice President attended Howard University, an HBCU in Washington, D.C. There, she pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. is the first African American Greek letter sorority founded in 1908 on the campus of Howard University.
Miss JSU, Daisia Davis is also a sister of Alpha Kappa Alpha. She say to share the same walks of life as the Vice President is rejuvenating and give her the feeling that she can do whatever she sets her mind to.
The AKA’s are just one of the 9 Greek organizations that make up the National Pan-Hellenic Council, otherwise known as the Divine-9:
- Alpha Phi Alpha
- Alpha Kappa Alpha
- Kappa Alpha Psi
- Omega Psi Phi
- Delta Sigma Theta
- Phi Beta Sigma
- Zeta Phi Beta
- Sigma Gamma Rho
- Iota Phi Theta
Miss JSU say this isn’t just monumental history for the AKA’s, but the entire Divine-9 council. “We’re all a team, and all a family” said Davis.
