...that Debbie Allen was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. I know Phylicia Rashad is a soror...but I have always heard that Debbie Allen was a member of another organization. Someone please enlighten me.

Sexy Mocha, you are not alone I had always heard the same thing. And yesterday when I read that I was surprised. I am not a member (BTW, CONGRATS!, but that one makes me go hMMM! But I guess it is verifiable, if it is indeed true.

I'm under the impression that Debbie Allen is not an AKA. Did I miss something?

I was under the impression that she was a member of Delta Sigma Theta...but since I came across this bit of info. in the DST forum (Debbie being an AKA) I guess I was wrong. I didn't think she was a soror though. I have been on-line checking all morning, but to no avail. This has really peaked my curiosity.

OOHLALA, thanks for the congrats http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif!

OKAY, you went to another forum?

SO, SOROR, WHY IS YOUR INFORMATION INCORRECT? COULD IT BE THAT THE WRONG INFORMATION WAS POSTED on the other forum? NEVER SECOND-GUESS YOURSELF! You know better than that! http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif

I DON'T THINK DEBBIE IS A SOROR! It maybe assumed that she is since Phylicia is....

Dang Soror...I busted myself! Yes, I'm guilty of being in another forum http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/biggrin.gif
Every now and then I like to sneak a peek into the other forums and see what they're chatting about. You're right about second guessing myself. First, I was like "Well, maybe she isn't a Delta, but I know she's not an AKA" Then that turned into "IS she an AKA?!?" Which led to "They (Debbie and Phylicia) ARE sisters...right??"
Thanks for the advice soror! http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif

Come on Sister Greeks...yes we all peek and sometimes we actually have something cool to share...extended Sisterhood...right?

Debbie Allen is NOT an AKA. She's a Howard Alumnus...trust me the Deltas showered Debbie with love when she would come on campus. And Phylicia got the same love from her Sorors of AKA when she came to visit.

Biological sisters...YES...Sorors...NO

So, you are saying that Debbie is a Delta? Simply because she was "showered" with love? Or is this a fact?

Just asking...

Cause "we" "showered" many people (visitors) on our campus, but they were not necessarily Sorors.

BTW,
I did not think Debbie was a Soror. It is a FACT that her sister, Phylicia IS an Alpha Chapter Soror.

Hello Sisterfriends of AKA!

I am glad I spotted this topic before I posted the question "Is Debbie Allen an AKA?" I have honestly NEVER heard that she's a Delta, and I've been a member of DST for almost 4 years now (and I attended Howard for 2 years). Where have I been?!?!?! I've done research (since a post in our forum by an Alpha chapter Zeta said that she's my Soror), and can't find ANYTHING that claims Debbie Allen as a Delta! I think we can conclude that, while she is a Howard alumna and sister of an Alpha Chapter AKA, she's not in a sorority at all. What do you think? If there are any Alpha chapter sorors and AKAs who can fill us in, that'd be much appreciated. Debbie ALlen is such a phenomenal woman that you can't blame us for wanting to claim her, right? Still, I wouldn't want to perpetuate any rumors that aren't true!

Thanks!

BTW, Happy Holidays to each of you and to all the people you love!!!

Hey Y'all!

I am not sure but I was told (I'm not an Alpha Chapter soror but I was made in DC)that she wasin the Ivy Leaf Plegde Club but dropped. I was also told that she was extended membership into Delta Sigma Theta and after they found out that bit of info the issue of her honorary membership was dropped in some way shape or form. This info may not be 100% correct but I heard it from a pretty reliable source. That is why so many people don't know if she is one, the other or both. http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/wink.gif

ok, i asked two of my big sisters and one says yes she's a soror, the other says no she is not. http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/rolleyes.gif so i'm going to leave this one alone, until i can get some more info but to be sure Alpha Chapter doesn't recognize her, nor do i, and i have never seen any AKA publication add her as a famous member, i remember one year she visited and a soror told me she addressed the deltas as her soror, even doing their sign? i was under the impression that she was a soror of dst, but we all know rumors are neverending http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif

I spoke to my AKA friend who is from Alpha chapter and she confirmed YES Phylicia Rashad is an Alpha chapter AKA...as well as Toni Morrison, and Roxy Roker.

If anyone has any other Alpha chapter history inquiries, I am more than happy to hook you up with your Soror. She's actually a very dear friend of mine and a big history buff.

All of that stuff is pretty easy to confirm by simply looking at old Bison yearbook. (All of us had to do it as part of our initial research).

Happy Holidays ALL!!!

thanks soror lluvmook for your insight i think you hit it on the head with your post. i prefer not to give out false/shady info so as an Alpha Chapter soror i went straight to the source to confirm, and after speaking with sorors from different years "drum roll" Debbie Allen is an eternal ivy, not a soror and i think we'll leave it as that because obviously she would prefer to keep that on the downlow http://www.greekchat.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif. and yes Phylicia Rashad is a soror of Alpha Chapter of that Finer Woman there was NEVER any doubt, thanks for your input, BUT when it comes to soror business/history i prefer to go straight to the source as i am a soror of AKA and i was made at Alpha so i have more then enough resources to confirm/quench any history inquiries sorors may have about MY chapter.

I really did not mean to appear to be in your "biz". There seemed to be a discrepency. And Phylicia not only your Soror is a fellow alumnus of my school...and a very visible Howardite at that. I sensed an air of disdain in the past few posts. If I have disrespected any of you in the smallest way, I apologize.

From my point of view it would have been like my aka friend saying yes Zora Neale Hurston is a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. common knowledge at HU...she actually named the Hilltop (the college newspaper)(I have heard people try to debate this)...but its verifiable. My aka friend knows not only was Zora a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. but she pledged at Howard University.

Quite frankly, the web has opened up a nasty can of worms for all of us in terms of information. I have read on webpages of other organizations (mine included) misinformation regarding famous members and other history (not the basic stuff we all state). Shoot in many cases, you cannot confirm 100% that the person who created the page is even a member. There are thousands upon thousands of sites greek related...imagine that.

Postively, when did you cross at Alpha chapter? You probably know my girl...She is 8-A-94....she just finished her MBA at HU this past year.


Best to you all...Happy Kwanzaa for those of you celebrating!

Speaking of the Alpha Chapter of AKA, I have a dear friend who was made there in '96. Her name is Joi Huff and I haven't seen her since I left HU shortly after she crossed. Stace is a good buddy, too, as well as Kim (the tail of that line). If anyone knows how to contact her, e-mail me with the info or give her mine. My personal webpage addy is: http://lajune.net
