Black Students Shocked When White Substitute Teacher Wears AKA Jacket in Class

Nationwide — A white substitute teacher who was seen wearing an Alpha Kappa Alpha jacket in class, despite the students telling her not to, has sparked widespread attention on social media.

Last week, the teacher was pictured wearing an AKA jacket that belonged to the teacher she was filling in for. Knowing that wearing official AKA apparel is an exclusive privilege reserved solely for its members, the students tried to advise her against it but she still went ahead.

“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.

The student even posted a photo of her own shocked expression in response to the situation. The post quickly went viral, racking up over 17 million views.

Alpha Kappa Alpha is the oldest intercollegiate sorority for African-American women in the U.S., founded in 1908 at Howard University. It has played a significant role in supporting Black women in academia and networking. AKA is one of the largest national Greek organizations, part of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, also known as the Divine 9.

The varsity-styled jacket showcases AKA’s signature salmon pink and apple green colors and holds deep meaning as a symbol of membership. Becoming an AKA member involves a carefully structured selection process.
