Psi Alpha History
The poet James Arthur Baldwin stated: "Know from whence you came. If you know whence you came, there are absolutely no limitations to where you can go." In the 1940s' there was a void- a need for African-American male leadership in San Antonio. Eight young men stood ready to fill that need. Already being members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Inc., these young men would charter an organization that would eventually affect the lives of thousands of San Antonians.
All of these young men were proud graduates of some of our nation's top HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities). Some as young as twenty-four years of age, serving as doctors, dentists, civil servants, and many other professions. The charter members set out to serve their community in ways that still live over 80 years later.
Armed with the strength of their conviction, on November 1, 1940- the Psi Alpha Chapter of The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated was born. Click the link below to read more about the founding and growth of Psi Alpha Chapter.
