Actress, Singer and Philanthropist Dawnn Lewis and Politician and Activist Samia Yaba Christina Nkrumah have Joined the Esteemed African-American Women's Service Organization

WASHINGTON, Oct. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. announced two new honorary members, Dawnn Jewel Lewis and Samia Yaba Christina Nkrumah, have joined the esteemed African American women's service organization. Both were inducted earlier in 2022.

Dawnn Jewel Lewis, actress, singer, and philanthropist, is best known for her role as Jalessa Vinson-Taylor on the award-winning television sitcom, A Different World. She is also the founder and CEO of A New Day Foundation, a nonprofit that provides financial and programmatic support to underprivileged youth and grassroots community-based nonprofit organizations. Additionally, she is Advisory Board Chairman of Youth Entertainment Studios (Y.E.S), a member of the National Advisory Board of the National Center of Civil and Human Rights, and serves as an acting coach and mentor to inner-city children.

Samia Yaba Christina Nkrumah is a politician, advocate, activist for social justice and equity, philanthropist, and daughter of the late Kwame Nkrumah, the first prime minister and president of Ghana, West Africa. She is founder/president of the Kwame Nkrumah Pan African Center, an organization established in her father's honor to promote his vision, philosophy, and political culture within the context of a united Africa. Her many charitable endeavors include being one of the founders of Africa Must Unite, and a member of the Council of Patrons for the Coalition of Supporters' Unions of Africa (COSUA). Nkrumah is also the first female chairperson of The Convention People's Party and the first woman to head a political party in Ghana. She advocates against child marriage and is a staunch supporter for women's empowerment and women's affairs.
