    African American fraternities and sororities have worked tirelessly for over 100 years to break down institutional educational barriers and establish organizational safe havens for their members. The nine historically black fraternities and sororities are: Alpha Phi Alpha founded in 1906 at Cornell University; Alpha Kappa Alpha, founded in 1908 at Howard University; Kappa Alpha Psi, founded in 1911 at Indiana University; Omega Psi Phi, founded in 1911 at Howard University; Delta Sigma Theta, founded in 1913 at Howard University; Phi Beta Sigma, founded in 1914 at Howard University; Zeta Phi Beta, founded in 1920 at Howard University; Sigma Gamma Rho, founded in 1922 at Butler University; and Iota Phi Theta, founded in 1963 at Morgan State University. The rolls of BGLOs are a genuine who’s who in the African American community such as: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Toni Morrison, Bill Cosby, Hattie McDaniel, Lena Horne, Arthur Ashe, George Washington Carver, Dorothy I. Height, Shirley Chisholm, Bobby Rush, Carol Moseley Braun and countless others. This books offers scholarly research on pertinent to the success of BGLOs such as: origin and evolutions of fraternities and sororities; civic and political organization led by BGLOs; the importance of brotherhood and sisterhood; the differences between Black and White fraternal organizations; and the importance of higher education and the inclusion in BGLOs.

    The collection of authors in this book provides an in depth and wide lense look into the history of Black Greek Letter Organizations and those histroical moments, and other organizations that have influenced them over time. It has provided me with a great foundation for working with NPHC organizations.
