Oct 18, 2022

What is the history of Detroit’s Black fraternity and sorority houses? And what contributions have they made to Detroit, one of America’s largest majority-Black cities? In conjunction with acclaimed documentarian Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s new PBS documentary, “Making Black America: Through the Grapevine,” “American Black Journal” continues to look at Black Greek Letter Organizations from a local perspective. City of Detroit Historian Jamon Jordan and producer Marcus Green come together for a report on the historical houses and contributions of some of the Detroit chapters of the Divine Nine fraternities and sororities.
