Onward & Upward: Alpha Phi Alpha Holds Private Ceremony @ Memorial

On Friday, as the threat of Hurricane Irene still loomed off of the east coast, thousands of men from the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity gathered at the memorial for a private tribute to King. The men were clad in their colors of black and gold, as they gathered to pay their respects to their legendary  brother and to see the fruits of their labor. Alpha Phi Alpha is Martin Luther King Jr.'s fraternity and the oldest Greek-letter fraternity for African Americans in the country. The organization conceived and pushed for the King memorial.

Sidenote: Today is SUCH a beautiful day. I wish people had a little more faith and went ahead with the official dedication ceremony.
