Title

Article "Past, future of black Greek organizations discussed"

Description

Ishmail Conway, Director of the Luther P. Jackson Cultural Center at the University of Virginia, was a guest speaker at the University of Richmond during Black History Month. During his speech, he focused on the importance and significance behind Black Greek Organizations, specifically the impact that these black fraternities and sororities made on historically white college campuses. There was particular emphasis on the traditions within these black fraternities and sororities that were regarded as “hazing” by the white communities at white institutions. The discrepancies within hazing when comparing white greek organizations to black greek organizations were highlighted as students from Alpha Kappa Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta sorority’s continued discussing similar matters after the speech.
