the black collegiate fraternal movement did not begin with Alpha Phi Alpha, we're just the oldest (still in existence). . . The Negro National Anthem was co-written by a Sigma man James Weldon Johnson Alpha Phi Alpha partners with Church's Chicken to boost minority franchisees Legendary Grambling Football Coach Eddie Robinson is an Alpha as is Ebony Founder John H. Johnson Kwame from "The Apprentice" is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi

:arrow: Bishop Eddie Long, Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., Robert Johnson (BET founder) Montell Jordan (Beta Omega (Pepperdine), 1989), John Singleton and Tavis Smiley (Alpha Chapter) are members of Kappa Alpha Psi. :arrow: Robin Manning from America's Next Top Model - Season 1 is a member of Delta Sigma Theta. I believe Kesse Wallace is a Delta as well.

Steal all the good ones why don't you sawrah? Alpha Phi Alpha is one of the largest contributors of time and donations to the March of Dimes Older greeks generally refer to their grips as "the fraternal handshake" and they shake hands to grip instead of pulling their bodies close Brother Charles H. Wesley, the fraternity historian, also collected and penned the history of Sigma Pi Phi, the Prince Hall Masons, the Elks, and the A.M.E. church.
