PROMINENT ALPHAMEN

 

It does not take a mathematician to figure out that this is a vast majority of powerful men.
Alpha Phi Alpha represents more than one can ever imagine.

60% of all Black Male Doctors are Alpha Men
75% of all Black Male Lawyers are Alpha Men
65% of all Black Male Dentists are Alpha Men
95% of all Black Colleges have been headed by Alpha Men

    Alpha Men are on the forefront of social change in America. Although we all pursue goals in diverse fields of interest, we share a common mission in uplifting the economic condition of all our people.  It is simply not enough for an Alpha Man to obtain a college degree, still a larger task remains. An Alpha Man must provide sound leadership in his community, being committed to service. He is charged to lend a hand to his fellow man.
