Homewood Alphas

Homewood Alphas The Mu Psi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has been a productive facet of the metropolitan Birmingham area for over 30 years.

Founded in Homewood, Alabama as of March 17, 1978, the chapter represents the dream and the vision of 30 dedicated and industrious men who wanted to rekindle the spirit of their brotherhood that was initially established during their collegiate years. As a result, the thirty brothers officially synchronized their efforts across the great city of Birmingham for Alpha men unaffiliated with a local graduate chapter. The fruits of these 30 visionary men are still abundantly reaped today. Mu Psi Lambda actively participates in a number of wholesome projects such as the March of Dimes, Project Alpha, and some other worthy fund-raisers. In adhering to the fraternity’s motto of “First of All Servants of All We shall Transcend All,†the chapter proudly celebrates its past and it meticulously prepares to address and surmount the challenges of tomorrow. Most importantly, Mu Psi Lambda nobly stands today in the very fine and rich tradition and spirit of Alpha Phi Alpha.

Mission: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity develops leaders, promotes brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities.

#Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - introduced January 1, 1863 - is the legislation that granted slaves freedom. However, it was nearly two and a half years later on June 19, 1865 that all enslaved people were notified of their newfound freedom and rights, especially those in the South - particularly Texas.

Although this new legislation required plantations to begin compensating anyone who worked the land, many former slaves decided to travel elsewhere to find opportunities to maximize their newfound freedom with family and friends. June 19th became a day of celebration for African Americans around the country who gathered to pray, fellowship, and commune with one another to celebrate our freedom.

It is important that we honor our ancestors and be counted. Complete the US Census today! Go to: my2020census.gov

General information

Since its founding on December 4, 1906, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African-Americans and people of color around the world. Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African-Americans, 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 visionary founders, known as the "Jewels" of the Fraternity, are Henry Arthur Callis, Charles Henry Chapman, Eugene Kinckle Jones, George Biddle Kelley, Nathaniel Allison Murray, Robert Harold Ogle, and Vertner Woodson Tandy. The Fraternity initially served as a study and support group for minority students who faced racial prejudice, both educationally and socially, at Cornell. The Jewel founders and early leaders of the Fraternity succeeded in laying a firm foundation for Alpha Phi Alpha's principles of scholarship, fellowship, good character, and the uplifting of humanity. Alpha Phi Alpha chapters were established at other colleges and universities, many of them historically black institutions, soon after the founding at Cornell. The first Alumni Chapter was established in 1911. While continuing to stress academic excellence among its members, Alpha also recognized the need to help correct the educational, economic, political, and social injustices faced by African-Americans. Alpha Phi Alpha has long stood at the forefront of the African-American community's fight for civil rights through leaders such as: W.E.B. DuBois, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr., Edward Brooke, Martin Luther King, Jr., Thurgood Marshall, Andrew Young, William Gray, Paul Robeson, and many others. True to its form as the "first of firsts," Alpha Phi Alpha has been interracial since 1945.
