Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Black Sorority/Fraternity Life

Sororities have a well-deserved reputation for thriving on exclusivity. Separating the “us” from the “them”. But are they racist. Absolutely not!

Black sororities and fraternities were established between 1906-1922, and 1964, a time where we were not allowed/accepted into white organizations, and they have stood the test of time, and are still going strong today.
Of the divine 9 (the largest, and some of the earliest and well-known black sororities, and fraternities) none of them will disqualify you on the basis of your race or skin tone. I know or have seen Caucasians in each of them.
therefore, all-black organizations are predominantly black, not all black, nor are they racist.
“The National Pan-Hellenic Council was established in an age when racial segregation and disenfranchisement plagued African Americans, the rise of each of the black fraternities and sororities that make up the NPHC bore witness to the fact that despite hardships African Americans refused to assend to a status of inferiority.”
