Alpha Phi Alpha: A Brotherhood of Leaders

Founded in 1906 at Cornell University, Alpha Phi Alpha stands as the beacon of leadership and academic excellence. As the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African American men, Alpha Phi Alpha has been at the forefront of social change, with notable members like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. leading the charge for civil rights. The fraternity's commitment to "Manly Deeds, Scholarship, and Love for All Mankind" shines through its initiatives such as the "Go-to-High School, Go-to-College" campaign, designed to promote academic excellence among youth.

Alpha Kappa Alpha: Pioneers of Service and Sisterhood

Alpha Kappa Alpha, established in 1908 at Howard University, holds the distinction of being the first Greek-lettered sorority created by and for African American women. With a focus on high scholastics and ethical standards, Alpha Kappa Alpha has been instrumental in promoting education, health, and global poverty relief through its vast array of community service initiatives. The sorority's iconic pink and green colors and the pearl symbolize the elegance and perseverance of its members.
