About Our Society

The Academia Society, Inc. is one of the oldest non-Greek-lettered societies established by African American college-trained men. To trace its history is to tell a story of changing patterns of human relations in America in the 20th century. The small group of men who organized the Society was conscious of a privileged position as college-trained men of color, just one generation removed from civil rights. They were resolute that their college experiences should be as meaningful and productive as possible. The Academia Society was founded to apply that determination.
