A group of three African American entrepreneurs (who happen to be in Greek letter organizations) are seeking to do something about that.  Leandrew, Akintunde and Yaw have launched a commerce platform, Hingeto.com, to enable any brand or company to sell product without the risk of inventory. 

"Our platform levels the playing field by leveraging customers, Hingeto welcomes a diverse pool of artists and fashion entrepreneurs to grow their businesses without outside capital which they may not have access to.  For the month of February we wanted to honor a piece of our history by using our platform to shine a light on a vital part of our community, the Divine 9 (code word for certain Greek Letter Organizations)," says CEO Leandrew Robinson, a member of Alpha Phi Alpha.  

So, to celebrate black leaders, check out this list of famous black Americans that are Greek:
