Soror Carolyn House Stewart, Esq.
28th International President
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
Greetings on behalf of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc! It is my honor to introduce you to the Unsung Sorors of the Civil Rights Movement Exhibit. Why Unsung sorors? Because "courage doesn't always roar," and it was the collective efforts of sorors known and unknown that created the catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement.
This museum exhibit and the website that will extend its work is intended to recognize those sorors who functioned in front of the camera and behind the scenes, making important contributions to change America into a nation that honored its own promise of justice and equality for generations to follow. We honor them for their global leadership and timeless service.
As you peruse the exhibit and the website, we hope that it will whet your appetite to learn more about the sorors and others who worked tirelessly for American equality. Additionally, as you learn more about these sorors, take the opportunity to submit names of other unsung Alpha Kappa Alpha women you may know so that the online exhibit can serve to honor an increasing number of sorors who fought for equality in education, public services, and legal justice.
