The Arts!

Alpha Kappa Alpha's The Arts! program target purposes to expose students to arts enrichment and culture. Our salute to the Harlem Renaissance and the Black Arts Movement celebrates the contributions of African-American artists during these time periods. The AKA Delta Phi Omega Chapter partnered with The Walker Art Center to curate a presentation highlighting Black artists from the 1920's to the 1970's.

At the Walker Art Center, we would like to thank Nisa Mackie (Director and Curator of Education and Public Programs), Sarah Hayden (Lead Educator), and Alexandra Nicome (Interpretation Fellow), for their research and contributions. This was a vision that began prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and this team worked courageously to ensure that the material enclosed would be available for the youth in the community.
