Message from the Grand Basileus


A Sisterhood of Business and Professional Women

Message from the Grand Basileus

Dr. Ditra Stanford Scruggs, 22nd Grand Basileus

Greetings!

Welcome to the National Website of Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc.!

Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc., is a sisterhood of business and professional women who provide community service and support, encourage educational pursuits, and address societal issues. The ideals of Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc., encompass four principles: Sisterhood, Achievement, Service, and Scholarship. The Sorority expresses these ideals through every program and activity.

Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc., is a National Affiliate of the National Council of Negro Women, Inc., the Black Women’s Agenda, Inc., and contributes to the United Negro College Fund. We also sponsor the Florence K. Norman Scholarship, named after the organization’s founder.

On January 19, 1937, a group of 25 college-educated women who were engaged in various professions and businesses gathered to discuss plans to organize a new Greek-letter organization. Led by Mrs. Florence K. Norman Williamson, a charter member of the National Council of Negro Women, the women established a professional Sorority chartered to address the critical issues that impact the African American community, with a particular emphasis on assisting women.  

As the 22nd Grand Basileus of Lambda Kappa Mu Sorority, Inc., I am honored to continue this legacy with the 2019-2021 national program: “Empowered Women, United as Sisters for Justice, Health and the Family.”

The action plan for this program is outlined in the resolution adopted by the Sorority earlier this year. Lambda Kappa Mu and its members will advocate for the justice, health, and safety of all women and girls through continued work and education with its Kopelle Youth Group, in partnership with other women’s organizations and those groups that place emphasis on the health and well-being of women and girls. Members are also charged to gain expertise in at least one area of national concern: pay equity, domestic violence, discrimination in primary and secondary education, sexual abuse, trafficking of women and girls, reproductive rights, and advocacy on behalf of issues that promote equity for women and girls. Please take a few minutes to read the full resolution.

We invite you to share in our program progress by visiting our website, following our social media, and participating in selected events in your communities. If you would like to communicate directly with someone in our organization, please feel free to reach out.  Our contact information is available on our site.

 Sincerely,

Dr. Ditra Stanford Scruggs
