Synopsis: America's Black fraternities and sororities are a unique and vital part of 20th-century African-American history. The Divine Nine tells how these organizations have played a major role in shaping generations of black leaders. Includes interviews with Star Jones, Shaquille O'Neal, Spencer Christian, and Nikki Giovanni. Two 24-page photo inserts.

From the Back Cover: Never before has information about African American fraternities and sororities been published for the general public, until now...

America's black fraternities and sororities are a unique and vital part of 20th century African American history, providing young black achievers with opportunities to support each other while they serve their communities and the nation.

From pioneering work in the suffragette movement to extraordinary strides during the Civil Rights era to life-changing inner-city mentoring programs in the 1990s, members of these organizations share a proud tradition of brotherhood, sisterhood, and service.

Today, America's nine black fraternities and sororities are two and one-half million members strong with chapters at major universities and colleges, including Stanford University, Howard University, and University of Chicago.

This extensive yet very accessible book celebrates the spirit of excellence shared by African American fraternity and sorority members, both past and present, and is sure to be treasured for generations to come.

From John H. Johnson and Dr. Gwendolyn Goldsby-Grant to Star Jones and Shaquille O'Neal

PLUS INSPIRING PROFILES OF OTHER FAMOUS MEMBERS --
