This year was a big year for the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha who were at the center of most of the large events in the black community.
Highlights include the fact that Alphas were at the center of racial politics like the ousting of Mizzou’s president. Media takeovers, including Bro. Omari Hardwick’s success as the main character on the hit show “Power.” As well as large charity works like the Alpha’s $200,000 donation to Morehouse college.
The brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha also experienced a lot of painful loss this year including the early death of ESPN’s Stuart Scott and the murder of Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney who was killed during a racially motivated mass shooting at a church in Charleston, NC.
We at Watch The Yard would like to honor the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha by creating this list of our top Alpha stories of 2015.
