About our Black History Month Events:
This collaboration is the first of three Academy events to celebrate Black History Month. We are excited to partner with the Alpha Phi Alpha, the YWCA, and Alpha Kappa Alpha to help ensure that Academy programming is created with the community in mind. Lynchburg is a diverse city, and the Academy looks forward to sharing the history and experiences of African-Americans beyond February with more events and community conversations.
About Alpha Phi Alpha:
Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established in 1906 for African American men, was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York by seven college men who recognized the need for a strong bond of brotherhood among African descendants in this country. The fraternity initially served as a study and support group for minority students who faced racial prejudice, both educationally and socially, at Cornell. Since its founding, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African Americans and people of color around the world.
