A new documentary is coming and it’s highlighting the legacy of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority.
In honor to celebrate 113 great years of the sorority, a new documentary titled Twenty Pearls is in the works.
The documentary will share the story of the oldest Black-Greek letter sorority that was founded in 1908 on the campus of Howard University. The sorority is accumulated of nearly 300,000 members across 50 states and 55 nations.
In an official statement, the documentary’s director, Deborah Riley Draper said, “This is such an incredible moment in our history as we look at Black women.”
She added, “History and sisterhood, in the context of 113 years of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., has not appeared on the screen like this before and I think the world needed to understand what Black women looked like from 1908 to this moment and what all of the iterations were that allowed us to get here.”
This new documentary will serve as the first feature relase on Comcast’s newly launched “Black Experience on Xfinity.”
Twenty Pearls premiered on March 26 on Xfinity and is currently available nationwide on demand.
