[HOUSE OF ALPHA WEEK] Brother William T. Coleman, Jr. is recognized as the first African American to serve as Secretary of Transportation. Brother Coleman was also a judge and attorney, playing an integral role in significant civil rights cases. Upon graduating high school, he attended the University of Pennsylvania, majoring in political science and economics. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.A. in History in 1941. In college, he was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa Society and Pi Gamma Mu international honor society. He was also an initiate of the Psi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

Brother Coleman was accepted into Harvard Law School; however, he left to enlist in the Army Air Corps. After a failed attempt to join the Tuskegee Airmen, Brother Coleman spent the war defending the accused in courts-martial. He later returned to Harvard Law, becoming the third Black staff member accepted into the Harvard Law Review. He began his legal career serving as the first African American Supreme Court law clerk. He was ultimately recruited by Brother Thurgood Marshall to be one of the lead strategists and co-author of the legal brief in the Brown v. Board of Education case in 1954. Brother Coleman was a member of the NAACP’s national legal NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

In 1975, President Gerald Ford appointed Brother Coleman to serve in his Cabinet as the fourth Secretary of Transportation. After completing his tenure, Brother Coleman returned to Philadelphia and became a partner in the Washington office of the O’Melveny & Myers law firm.

In September 1995, Brother Coleman was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton.

Brother William T. Coleman, Jr. entered the Omega Chapter on March 31, 2017 at age 96, but his legacy will never be forgotten.

On yesterday, my heart was saddened as I received word that Brother Tracy Williams, a Brother with over 60 years of committed Fraternal service, an Educator who cared about his students and a staunch supporter of my professional endeavors as Chief Executive Officer of the CSRA Business League, Inc. and my Fraternal Service as a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. and the Alpha Chi Lambda chapter had passed away. He will be missed dearly by all who knew him and came in contact with him, but as the Bible says... weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Farewell Dear Brother Tracy Williams, transcendent are thou, your memory shall dwell with us now, we will always cherish your memory, your good name we will always revere, too thy Glory, too thy Honor, Brother Tracy Williams dear.

In 2006 I along with Brother Eugene L Aiken Jr. and Brother Daryle L. Cobb had the honor of leading the processional into the 2nd Century during the Centennial Convention. The processional theme song was part of the original music composed specifically for the convention by Brother Dr. Uzee Brown. One of my favorite songs during the Public Program was a poem composed by Brother Past Midwestern Regional Vice President Dr. Thomas D. Pawley, III and set to music by Brother Dr. Uzee Brown. The Hymn to the Founders from the Public Program of the Centennial Convention held in Washington, DC.
