Two Howard University Students File Lawsuit Against Alpha Kappa Alpha For Violation of Human Rights

Two Alpha Kappa Alpha interests have filed a lawsuit against the sorority and Howard University for allegations of hazing and the violation of their human rights, the Washington City Paper reports.

In a lawsuit filed on Feb. 28 in federal court, Howard students Laurin Compton and Lauren Cofield allege the sorority’s Alpha chapter barred them from entry due to their familial status. The young women happen to be “legacies,” meaning their mothers are members of the sorority.

The young women allege they were subjected to hazing rituals, which included being called “weak b------” and being forbidden from wearing pink and green colors and white pearls.

The young women are reportedly seeking monetary damages and want the court to halt the sorority’s pledge process.
