UNapproachable Black Chicks

In 1908, Slowe was one of the sixteen original founders of the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority. She was vital to the drafting of the sorority’s constitution and served as the chapter’s first president But it is very rarely known that in 1917 she became the first African-American woman to win a national title in any sport when she claimed the first women’s title at the American Tennis Association (ATA) national tournament in Baltimore.
