A white substitute teacher who was seen wearing an Alpha Kappa Alpha jacket in class despite students telling her not to has sparked widespread social media attention.
Last week, the teacher was photographed wearing the AKA jacket of the substitute teacher. Knowing that wearing official AKA attire is a privilege held primarily for its members, the students advised her against it, but she persisted.
“Y’all why I’m in class and we got a sub and she gon grab our teacher’s AKA jacket and put it on and then we tryna explain to her and tell her to take it off and SHE WON’T DO IT LMFAOOOO,” one of the students took to Twitter, according to Newsbreak.
In response to the scenario, the student even uploaded a photo of herself looking astonished. The post went viral rapidly, garnering over 17 million views.
Alpha Kappa Alpha is the oldest African-American women’s intercollegiate sorority in the United States, founded in 1908 at Howard University. It has been crucial in assisting Black women in academia and networking. AKA is a member of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, often known as the Divine 9, and is one of the largest national Greek organizations.
The varsity-styled jacket features AKA’s characteristic salmon pink and apple green colors and carries significant value as a symbol of membership. A thoroughly structured selection process is required to become an AKA member.
