Leadership and Service: The Making and Remaking of Alpha Phi Alpha, 3rd Edition

In 1929, Brother Dr. Charles Harris Wesley published his path-breaking history of African American, collegiate-based fraternal life—The History of Alpha Phi Alpha: A Development of Negro College Life. In those pages, and in subsequent editions of the Fraternity’s history, Brother Wesley tells a story, in large part, about the many men—and some women—who helped make Alpha Phi Alpha great. Countless of these individuals are nothing more than names associated with offices or committees or events or places. The reader is left to wonder: who are these individuals; what are their, respective, stories? It is my hope that this book answers those questions for some of those individuals—that it provides some context to who the individuals are who sacrificed and served to move Alpha Phi Alpha toward what the Jewels envisioned the Fraternity to be.
