To celebrate its 100th year anniversary, Mattel has created an Alpha Kappa Alpha Barbie doll. All dressed in pink and green, this barbie will be available in stores soon. If you didn’t know, Alpha Kappa Alpha is the first African-American sorority, established in 1908 at Howard University. Out of the sororities I’ve seen Alpha Kappa Alpha or  Mu Sigma Upsilon) are among my favorites, (although my friend Deborah and cousin Betty would rather me like Delta Sigma Theta)  though I doubt I’d join them. The sisterhood I can deal with, but the stepping I can’t (I’m not that good at dancing).
