African American Fraternities and Sororities, second edition

The Legacy and the Vision

The first African American fraternities and sororities were established at the turn of the twentieth century to encourage leadership, racial pride, and academic excellence among black college students confronting the legacy of slavery and the indignities of Jim Crow segregation. With a strong presence that endures on today's campuses, African American fraternities and sororities claim legendary artists, politicians, theologians, inventors, intellectuals, educators, civil rights leaders, and athletes in their ranks.

In this second edition of African American Fraternities and Sororities: The Legacy and the Vision, editors Tamara L. Brown, Gregory S. Parks, and Clarenda M. Phillips have added new chapters that address issues such as the role of Christian values in black Greek-letter organizations and the persistence of hazing. Offering an overview of the historical, cultural, political, and social circumstances that have shaped these groups, African American Fraternities and Sororities explores the profound contributions that black Greek-letter organizations and their members have made to America.

New in the second edition:
Examination of the relationship between Christian values and organizational identity
Investigation of hazing rituals
Survey of academic performance in black Greek-letter organizations
Discourse on notions of masculinity in black Greek-letter organizations
Accounts of the professional lives of black Greek luminaries

"One of the first scholarly works published on BGLOs, African American Fraternities and Sororities not only provides a history of these overlooked organizations and their impact on America but serves as an unbiased testament to the intellect, dignity, commitment, and courage of the 'Divine Nine' in their struggles against racial injustice."—Tennessee Historical Commission
