Last night in Chicago, Barack Obama asked us to help move the country forward through community service. A current exhibit at the City of Austin’s Carver Museum shows a great example of fulfilling this request. The exhibit narrates the 100 year history of the America’s first black sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha. Both UT and Huston-Tillotson have very active chapters, but the members’ service commitment continues beyond graduation. As I was wandering through the exhibit room, a young man pointed to a photograph, and proudly exclaimed, “That’s my sister!” The photographs are framed in the sorority’s colors, pink and green, making it a lovely exhibit.
