Alpha Kappa Alpha Centennial Barbie Doll Unveiled on The Early Show


I am so excited to post this photo of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Centennial Barbie doll. I tuned into The Early Show this morning to watch my sorority sisters spread the word about AKA and share the history of international gathering in Washington, DC.

I did not expect my sorority's spokesperson to unveil the AKA Barbie doll on television; what a bonus! I can't explain how it felt to see our organization's shield and beautiful colors --- salmon pink and apple green on a Barbie.

The doll looked like the one pictured above except I think the hair was a tad lighter. There were several boxes on the display table and one out of the box. You know I wanted to jump through the screen to get one.

Anyhoo, one of my sisters (Thanks, Soror Shawna) will get one for me and you know I will order more. This was a smart move on Mattel's behalf because they will make a mint from the sorority members, family and friends who will purchase the doll as gifts and others who just love the doll.

For any of my family, friends and kind strangers that may read this; I can never have too many of this doll.

It goes without saying that I will write about the doll when I actually receive her. She'll be availalble at BarbieCollector.com in mid-August.

Until next time, Smooches...

Don't like the hairstyle. It should be wavy, curly and shorter.

I'm not crazy about the hair either but the style can be changed. I plan to have her hair re-rooted into dreadlocks.

This doll is very beautiful. Well all the women of AKA Soroity Inc. are beautiful. I'm a young African American women who looks up to these fine ladies. I must say I am waiting on the day and time it takes to finally become an AKA!
