Title

Article "Black sorority seeks charter at UR"

Description

This Collegian article, "Black Sorority Seeks Charter at UR," from March 2nd, 1995, is about the historically black sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha (AKA), seeking a charter at University of Richmond. Despite there being nine historically black sororities and fraternities, the article mentions that only one black sorority, Delta Sigma Theta (DST), has a charter at UR. Juletta Tyson, the president of UR’s DST chapter--which was chartered just three years before this article was published--expressed that the difficulty in obtaining a charter exists in the lack of numbers given the small black population at UR. The unofficial members of AKA declined to comment on the process of obtaining a charter for fear that it would negatively affect their ability to start an official chapter.
