“If you teach a man to fish...” Education gives everyone the tools they need to succeed in life. Our Chapter believes in this credo. And we do more than merely talk about that belief.
Southern University and A&M College had its beginning in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1880 when a group of Black politicians, led by former U.S. Senator P.B.S. Pinchback of New Orleans; a distinguished legislator, T.T. Allain of Iberville; and Henry Demas of St. John Parish petitioned the State Constitutional Convention to establish a school of higher learning for “colored” people. The University relocated to Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1914 (what was then Scotlandville, along Scott's Bluff facing the Mississippi River).
