Alpha Phi Alpha honors Martin Luther King Jr.—
The old fraternity’s tribute to Martin Luther King Jr. wasn’t on the list of official events. It wasn’t open to the public. And it was scheduled for Friday morning, before the big salutes of Saturday and Sunday.
But with Hurricane Irene derailing almost everything else, the Alpha Phi Alpha ceremony became, by default, the sole dedication ritual at the towering new memorial to the fraternity’s most illustrious brother.
