  • History
    the bigotry came from the increasing number of Jewish immigrants in America Between 1880 and 1920 the Jewish population in America rose from about 250 000 to over 3 5 million due to an influx of Eastern European immigrants Coppa Curran 1976 This racism extended to colleges as literary societies and fraternity members chose to bar people of Jewish faith A notable anti Semitic incident occurred in 1877 when a judge barred a Jewish banker from registering as a guest of a New York hotel The banker Joseph Seligman was friend to Abraham Lincoln and the incident made the newspapers Two years later a prominent hotel chain announced it would not allow Jewish people to stay fearing that Jewish people would scare away high end clients By 1890 the anti Semitism had changed from anger over the killing of Christ to that of Jewish people being a lesser class of individuals Dinnerstein 1994 Jewish immigrants came to America as some of the poorest but many became financially affluent due to the labor skills they brought with them This new financial prominence led many to become targets of bigotry Most of the first fraternities asked initiates to recognize an entity that created man as a part of initiation It was not until Alpha Chi Rho founded at Trinity College in Hartford Connecticut 1895 that a fraternity had a membership requirement of practicing Christianity Johnson 1972 Many fraternity members began limiting participation by people of Jewish faith The reaction to this was seen in 1895 and 1901 with the creation of Pi Lambda Phi and Delta Sigma Phi Both fraternities started as nonsectarian as a protest against the exclusion of men of Jewish heritage Brown Parks Phillips 2005 Later in 1898 Zeta Beta Tau was created by a group of students from various colleges in New York and was the first fraternity based around the Jewish faith In 1924 a survey was taken by the North American Interfraternity Conference to examine membership restrictions by fraternities The study concluded that 12 percent of fraternities require Jewish beliefs and 22 percent require that members be White Christian males By 1957 most organizations had removed stipulations regarding religious beliefs and race Johnson 1972 p 39 40 Between 1895 and 1920 the majority of fraternities created were for Jewish students Brown et al 2005 The membership restrictions based on religion and heritage set in motion the rise of culturally based fraternities and sororities Universities like Cornell in Ithaca New York by 1916 had three Jewish two Black and one Chinese Greek letter organization The same 1924 study showed that of the 62 organizations polled 28 operated with a racial test in their selection procedures The study included four Black Greek letter organizations and one Chinese Johnson 1972 Starting new groups was in many cases a reaction to established groups excluding men from membership that came from lesser represented cultural ethnic and religious backgrounds p 42 Black Greek Letter Organizations Prior to the Civil War only 28 Black Americans had received baccalaureate degrees from United States colleges Roebuck Murty 1993 From 1826 1905 only 7 488 Black Americans had received degrees most at the end of the century Giddings 1994 2002 p 18 The first Black Greek letter organization Alpha Kappa Nu began in 1903 at Indiana University Kimbrough 2003 This organization existed for less than one year and shortly thereafter in 1904 Sigma Pi Phi began Sigma Pi Phi was created by professional African American men struggling to make a living These men felt alienated from both white and other African American men and Sigma Pi Phi was formed to get to know each other Brown et al 2005 p 97 98 This is the first continuous Black Greek letter fraternity but was primarily for graduates of universities Sigma Pi Phi was based around three pillars of wisdom faith and brotherhood The first multiyear undergraduate Black Greek letter fraternity Gamma Phi began in 1905 at Wilberforce University in Ohio Gamma Phi can be found in the yearbooks for over three decades then off and on until 1947 Kimbrough 2003 Another Black Greek letter fraternity is rumored to have existed The Chicago Defender in 1905 wrote a story about Pi Gamma Omicron at Ohio State University The college registrar at the time stated that no such organization registered Wesley 1929 1996 In 1905 eight Black students at Cornell University in New York came together to gain fellowship and create a social studies club Kimbrough 2003 According to Charles H Wesley 1929 1996 author of The History of Alpha Phi Alpha Black students were cut off from the many opportunities for mutual helpfulness which comes to groups of students through personal acquaintance and close association p 15 The students at Cornell came together for two reasons first to create a literary society to participate in the collegiate activities of the time and secondly to create a fraternal organization similar to those already in existence Less than a year later on October 30 1906 the young men of the social studies club at Cornell University initiated themselves into Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Wesley 1929 1996 Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc is the first continuous undergraduate Black Greek letter fraternity The second fraternity Kappa Alpha Nu also started at a predominantly white institution Indiana University in 1911 Brown et al 2005 This organization started in similar fashion to the first women s fraternities In 1911 only ten Black men attended Indiana University These men came together to address the racial inequities and social isolation they faced at the predominantly white Midwestern institution p 186 Kappa Alpha Nu formed under the tenants of Christian ideals and purpose of achievement Ross Jr 2000 In 1914 the name was changed to Kappa Alpha Psi possibly due the racist nickname Kappa Alpha Nig p 48 given to the group by White Indiana University students Acceptance was the first hurdle for all fraternities and sororities the second for Black Greek letter organizations at predominantly White institutions was discrimination In the early 1900s Black students at Howard University in the District of Columbia did not have to fight racism as most of the students were Black Howard was a historically Black college From 1866 1890 sixteen historically Black public colleges including Howard University in 1867 were started Seventeen additional black colleges started due to the second Morrell Act of 1890 This bill required states to provide separate educational facilities for Black Americans or admit them to existing White universities If they did not the state would risk losing federal money Roebuck Murty 1993 At Howard similar restrictions on social activities like the White serving institutions existed Not surprisingly the second chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha began at Howard in 1907 This was the first fraternal organization on the campus and shortly thereafter Howard would see the creation of five new Black fraternal organizations The first Black Greek letter sorority started in January of 1908 by nine women and called itself Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Kimbrough 2003 The name reflects the first letters of three Greek words of the organizations motto by culture and by merit Brown et al 2005 p 184 The colors selected salmon pink and apple green represent abundance of life womanliness fidelity and love p 185 These nine women consisted of the entire female population within the Howard Liberal Arts School Giddings 1994 2002 In February of 1909 another seven students joined the sorority and are included as founders by the sorority Kimbrough 2003 Just as rival organization would begin opposing traditional Caucasian fraternities and sororities the same would happen for Black Greek letter organization These rivalries would begin for many reasons including differences in class background tastes and social status Brown et al 2005 p 189 Over the next eleven years Howard University would see the start of two fraternities and two sororities The first rival fraternity would be Omega Psi Phi in 1911 Omega Psi Phi s name represents a Greek phrase meaning friendship is essential to the soul p 190 The organization was formed under the principles of manhood scholarship perseverance and uplift The other rival fraternity to begin at Howard was Phi Beta Sigma in 1914 Phi Beta Sigma was founded under the principles of brotherhood scholarship and service which is also reflected in their motto culture for service and service for humanity Baird 1879 1991 p III 169 The sorority rivalries began at Howard University with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority in 1913 In December of 1912 the undergraduate member of Alpha Kappa Alpha moved to change into Delta Sigma Theta for many reasons First they wished to change from a social to a more service and politically active group Second they wished to form a national organization be on multiple campuses and have a role for graduate chapters Third they wanted to separate from the traditions they had that were similar to the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity like officer names All but one undergraduate member became Delta Sigma Theta when the semester resumed in January What began was a life long rivalry between the two organizations that once were sisters Giddings 1994 2002 Officially Delta Sigma Theta incorporated on February 13 1913 with the purpose of maintaining a high standard of morality and scholarship among women generally Giddings 1994 2002 p 52 The young group centered on academic excellence scholarship support for the underserved positive political activity and service to the community Delta Sigma Theta 2005 The organization has since expanded its purpose and focuses its efforts around a five point programmatic thrust economic development educational development international awareness and involvement physical and mental health and political awareness and involvement Delta Sigma Theta 2005 2 The second and final rival sorority to begin at Howard was Zeta Phi Beta in 1920 Baird 1879 1991 This sorority started when a member of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity asked a women to start a sister organization She found five more women and they started an organization based on the ideals of high academic standards service on the campus and in the community sisterhood and promoting finer womanhood It is also the first and only sorority started as a sister organization Ross Jr 2000 Sigma Gamma Rho another Black Greek letter sorority got its start at Butler University in Indiana under adverse times Butler was not a Black serving institution and during the 1920 s thirty percent of the white male population in Indiana were members of the Ku Klux Klan Sigma Gamma Rho persevered and in 1922 began with the motto Greater Service Greater Progress Ross Jr p 276 They also hold close the virtues of faith hope and love Baird 1879 1991 Throughout the early part of the century the eight national Black Greek letter organizations continued to grow and expand to other campuses Collectively by 1930 Alpha Phi Alpha Alpha Kappa Alpha and Kappa Alpha Psi had over 100 chapters Kimbrough 2003 The eight groups came together in 1930 at Howard University to create a coordinating body for their chapters Ross Jr 2000 It was called the National Pan Hellenic Council or NPHC and was found as an umbrella organization The NPHC provides action strategies on matters of mutual concern and serves as the conduit through which these actions plans are put into effect Baird 1879 1991 p I 41 Local NPHC chapters are to be created when two or more member groups are at host locations Today they boast over 900 000 members worldwide The NPHC came about because the governing bodies for the traditional Caucasian Fraternities and sororities was centered around recruitment and social functions that only pertained to themselves Kimbrough 2003 In 1996 Iota Phi Theta fraternity joined the NPHC to make what is now known as the Divine Nine Black Greek letter organizations Baird 1879 1991 Iota Phi Theta began in 1963 and grew to be a dominating force Founded by non traditional students that felt too old to go through an undergraduate process for membership Instead they found a fraternity based on scholarship citizenship leadership fidelity and brotherhood Their motto is Building a Tradition Not Resting Upon One Ross Jr 2000 p 134 Kappa Alpha Psi and Iota Phi Theta are also members of the North American Interfraternity Conference Kimbrough 2003 Throughout the twentieth century many other Black Greek letter organizations started and continue today By 1980 over 50 groups had been in existence and many started at campuses that already hosted NPHC organizations Kimbrough 2003 New Black Greek letter organizations came about to express fraternally their ideas on Christianity Afrocentrity or just individuality Over 75 different Black Greek letter organizations have come to be many are still around today Latino Greek Letter Organizations For Spanish and Latin Americans the landscape of young America was forever changing In 1848 the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo separated Mexico from the United States Meier Rivera 1972 This was a symbolic separation originally as Mexicans freely traveled back and forth from Mexico Many came for labor jobs within the Southwestern United States Another large wave of Mexicans immigrated to the United States during and after the 1910 Mexican Revolution Many companies encouraged Mexicans to come during World War I to keep up with the military demand on products After the war the United States slipped into a recession and a repatriation movement began Companies began sending Mexicans back to Mexico in order to return jobs to Americans home from the war In 1924 the Congress appropriated 1 000 000 to create a border patrol to control the flow of migration This was the first attempt at border control The congress also began passing restrictive legislation controlling the amount of immigrants from non European countries During this period Chicano Latino and Hispano students began attending colleges in the United States Little has been written about Chicano Latino and Hispano higher education beginnings The first known Latin American student organization la Union Hispano Americana came about in 1898 at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy NY La Union Hispano Americana started as a cultural and intellectual society promoting Pan Americanism allowing students from Latin America and Spain to be involved in student organizations Phi Iota Alpha n d The second known society Sociedad Hispano Americana began at Louisiana State University in 1904 Its creation was to help Spanish American students gain friendships and support at universities Sociedad Hispano Americana changed its name in 1911 to Sigma Iota believed to be the first Latin based fraternity Baird 1879 1991 A second Latino fraternity Pi Delta Phi started at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1916 A third Lambda Phi Alpha began in 1919 at the University of California at Berkeley Realizing the existence of one another in 1921 Lambda Phi Alpha Pi Delta Phi and la Union Hispano Americana merged to become Phi Lambda Alpha This group used the constitution of Pi Delta Phi and the goals and mission of la Union Hispano Americana Phi Iota Alpha n d Sigma Iota later merged with Phi Lambda Alpha to become Phi Iota Alpha in 1932 Johnson 1972 Phi Iota Alpha after a brief hiatus from 1970 though 1985 restarted to be the oldest Latino fraternity in the United States Phi Iota Alpha today supports its members intellectual development cultural consciousness personal growth personal achievement and social awareness Phi Iota Alpha n d Within their current mission they continue to raise the consciousness and support of Pan Americanism Evidence of other Latino or Latina fraternal organizations is not available until the 1970s about the same time as Phi Iota Alpha s hiatus The presence of Latinos in higher education from 1900 1970 was relatively small Major change began during the presidency of Lyndon B Johnson from his programs paired with the civil rights movement In 1964 through 1965 bills passed that attempted to address inequality and discrimination in American society These bills included the Civil Rights Voting Elementary and Secondary Education and the Higher Education Act The Higher Education Act was set forth to help developing institutions The bill did not specify the type of institutions and the bills authors intended support for historically Black serving institutions By not specifying which colleges it was extended to Latino serving institutions MacDonald Botti Clark L 2007 To further the push towards equality the government also introduced affirmative action programs designed to ensure that colleges and universities gave equal treatment to women and members of minority groups in every phase of their operations Brubacher Rudy 1958 1987 p 236 This has changed the higher education landscape of today in that Latinos now the largest minority ethnic group are the fastest growing college enrollment group Their representation in 1976 was less then four percent of the students enrolled in higher education and in 2000 almost 10 percent This figure represented a 25 increase of enrollment for Latin American students Students over the same timeframe who were White only increased by 2 Black 15 and Asian Pacific Islander 18 Santiago Brown 2005 From the 1970s through today many Latina and Latino fraternities and sororities started on colleges and universities In 1975 Keane University in New Jersey offered bilingual education allowing Spanish speaking students to attain a degree in their native language Lambda Theta Alpha n d A group of 17 women came together to form Lambda Theta Alpha Latin Sorority Lambda Theta Alpha was founded to provide and practice social political and community service activities In 1979 they incorporated as an academic sorority with scholarly excellence with in their mission along with providing sisterhood based on unity love and respect Also in December of 1975 Lambda Theta Phi Fraternity began at Keane College by a group of men attempting to unite the Latino community Diaz Feliciano A n d The fraternity is based on the ideals of academic excellence brotherhood leadership Latino unity and service The founder wanted a fraternity because the university administration had experience working with fraternities and would understand them From 1975 through 2003 as cited
