Divine Nine, Lawrence C. Ross, 0758202709


FROM THE PUBLISHER

Never before has information about African American fraternities and
sororities been published for the general public, until now. A meticulously
researched history, The Divine Nine tells the story of how these
organizations have played a major role in shaping generations of black
leaders.

America's black fraternities and sororities are a unique and vital part of
20th century African American history. Since the creation of the first
fraternity in 1906 at Cornell University, they have provided young black
achievers with opportunities to support each other, while serving their
communities and the nation. From pioneering work in the suffragette movement
to extraordinary strides during the Civil Rights era to life-changing
inner-city mentoring programs in the 1990s, members of these organizations
share a proud and vital history of brotherhood, sisterhood, and service.

Today, America's nine black fraternities and sororities are two-and-one-half
million members strong and among the most powerful and influential groups in
African American society-with chapters at major universities and colleges
across the country, including Stanford University, Howard University, and the
University of Chicago. Many of America's most prominent business leaders,
scientists, politicians, entertainers, and athletes took their first steps
toward making a difference in the world in a fraternity or sorority. This
extensive yet very accessible book celebrates the spirit of excellence shared
by these and other renowned African Americans in brief, inspiring profiles.

Fully illustrated with photographs, The Divine Nine chronicles an important
yet previously neglected subject in African American history, making it the
first book of its kind, and one to be treasured for generations to come.
