Mattel Creates AKA Barbie
Mattel Inc. has created the limited-edition AKA Centennial Barbie, the first Barbie based on any sorority. The doll, outfitted in a pink and green evening gown, matching jeweled shoes and gold jewelry, honors the Chicago-headquartered sorority, the first established by black women at Howard University in 1908. Since then the sorority has inducted
about 200,000 members.
