The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority (AKA) announced on Friday that the organization is planning on providing scholarships to the daughter and granddaughters of police shooting victim George Floyd to attend an HBCU of their choosing.
AKA International President Dr. Glenda Baskin Glover has notified the family of the gracious gift that the AKA organization, which was founded on the campus of Howard University by Black collegiate women, had made to them.
Alpha Kappa Alpha plans on answering that call by denouncing police brutality but by also being there for the young women that were left behind by his senseless killing.
Glover says the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority will also be there to support the family in whatever way they can.
In a video posted to The Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority’s social media, Glover says, “Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated strongly condemns the senseless killings of Black women, Black men, and our Black children, in the United States, resulting from unlawful, unnecessary, and excessive use of force by police and those playing vigilante watchmen.”
