Most Memorable ΑΦΑ Moment :

I will never, ever forget, that night I crossed the Burning Sands of Alpha with my four Line Brothers. It was a cold cold night on March 20 1990, yet a night i will always remember, because for me, impossible dreams were suddenly transformed into unprecedented realities. Five men who started out as strangers, had suddenly became Brothers in the House of Alpha.

Favorite Tallahassee Spots:

Fishbone Restaurant, Home, and Church


Western Movies, listening to Gospel Music, Working out at the Gym, Playing with my grandkids, hanging out with my Alpha Brothers, FAMU and FSU Football games.

Most Memorable Trip:

1974, i was selected from more than 300 musicians to travel to Damascus, Syria, with the Florida State University School of Music, as one of 174 concert band members to represent the United States at the International World Trade Fair in Damascus , Syria.. We played Symphonic Concerts and Marching Band routines for King Hussein of Jordan and his Royal Court, for a week. The Apollo Astronauts were the only other representatives from the United States. I was one of only five Blacks chosen to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

What Alpha Means To You:

Alpha is manly deeds, scholarship, and love for all mankind. Alpha epitomizes the fundamental values of service, integrity, respect, quality and excellence, and since 1906, the brotherhood of Alpha has lived on the basic principle that to whom much is given, much is required. As a child of God and a Man of Alpha, if i can help help somebody as I pass along, if i can cheer somebody with a word or a song, if i can show somebody that he is traveling wrong, then my living will not be in vain. I am Alpha Phi Alpha.
