Happy Founder's Day to the ......

Ice Cold Brothers of the Alpha Phi Alpha Incorporated!!!! 105 Years ago 7 Jewels came together and created the FIRST, BEST, Fraterity of the Black & Old Gold.
"First of All, Servants of All, We Shall Transcend All, " Motto

In December 4,1906 at Cornell University, a hand full of students formed a way for the only Black students in Cornell to remain against the racism facing them.

Alpha Phi Alpha evolved into a primarily service organisation and provided leadership and service during the Great Depression,World Wars, and Civil Rights Movements. It addresses social issues such as apartheid, AIDS, urban housing, and other economic, cultural, and political issues of interest to people of color.

This group was a brotherhood of support, these men became Great and inspired the formation of the Sisterhood of 20 pearls Alpha Kappa Alpha, as well all the other Fraternities that came after.
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has continued to supply voice and vision to the struggle of African Americans and people of color around the world. The Fraternity has long stood at the forefront of the African-American community's fight for civil rights.

Members of Alpha Phi Alpha include Jamaican Prime Minister Norman Manley, Nobel Prize winner Martin Luther King, Jr., Olympian Jesse Owens, Justice Thurgood Marshall, United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young, and Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson.
