Greek culture at Morehouse College is a staple of its rich history. Being the first fraternity of the Divine 9 at numerous HBCUs and other institutions of higher learning, the men of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Alpha Rho Chapter held their probate show this week. The probate event welcomes new members to the fraternity in the form of a presentation showcase.
During this time, interests who committed to the fraternity are publicly showcased and highlighted individually and in unison for the first time. This is a moment where they show the community around them the fruits of the time they dedicated to preparing for this lifelong commitment.
All new members initially appear in masks, then eventually, they are unveiled to the crowd as official members. This probate contained enthusiastic members proclaiming Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. history while doing signature chants and strolls. The crowd was in awe of the performance and had a great time as well. Support was undoubtedly shown by the Divine 9 as other fraternities and sororities embraced the new members of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc.

There's nothing like attending a probate event at an HBCU. The energy is incomparable and the Black Excellence is alive and well.
