    This has given me a better understanding of Black Greek organizations, but its also a slow read. I have gone back and forth to this book a few times over the past few years and still haven't finished it.

    Great perspective on the history of Black Greek fraternalism above and beyond NPHC. I recommended this as a must read for any Greek advisor whether you work with NPHC organizations or not.
