When Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity was founded 115 years ago today, Black Americans were in the midst of as Rayford Logan viewed it the nadir period of our history. Black bodies were being burnt alive and hung from trees the need for some type of direct action and opposition to these oppressive acts of racial hatred was essential. Today, we honor the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity for stepping up and filling that void of leadership amongst young black men who opposed these virulent acts. I may not have pledged Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity but I respect those founders who stated 115 years ago that a change was on the horizon.
