Keeping ahead of COVID-19
This rapidly evolving corona virus (COVID-19) has imposed an upsetting, fluid situation upon our fraternity, region, chapters, families, communities, business and the world. While the leaders of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. aim to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we urge you to protect yourself and your love ones by practicing social distancing. #StayHome

BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2021
Dr. Ralph Johnson Bunche
(August 7, 1904 - December 9, 1971)
An American political scientist, academic, and diplomat who received the 1950 Nobel Peace Prize for his late 1940s mediation in Israel. He was the first African American to be so honored. He was involved in the formation and administration of the United Nations and played a major role in numerous peacekeeping operations sponsored by the UN. In 1963, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President John F. Kennedy.
Bunche was an active and vocal supporter of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. He participated in the 1963 March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. gave his "I Have a Dream" speech, and also in the Selma to Montgomery march in 1965, which contributed to passage of the landmark Voting Rights Act of 1965 and federal enforcement of voting rights.
While teaching at Howard University in 1928, Bunche dated and later married his student Ruth Harris on June 23, 1930. The couple had three children. He earned his Masters and Docorate degrees from Harvard, where he was the first African American to gain a PhD in political science from an American university.
INFORMATION IS POWER
The COVID-19 better known as the Coronavirus is now a pandemic we can NOT take lightly. It has already killed over 100k people globally with over 700k cases in the United States. The Men of Alpha Phi Alpha ask that you practice staying home, social distance, and properly washing your hands. Furthermore, wear a mask everywhere you go to protect you from the infection or spreading it to others. Keep in mind your immune system may be able to handle this virus, but others may not. The most affected are those of pre-existing conditions and the elderly. Being responsible together will help us all in the war against this silent killer. Stay Safe & Stay Home!
