60% of all Black male Doctors are Alphas
70% of all Black male Lawyers are Alphas
65% of all Black male Dentists are Alphas
and 95% of all HBCU’s have been headed by an Alpha at least once.

Alpha Men are on the forefront of social change in America. Although we all pursue goals in diverse fields of interest, we share a common mission in uplifting the economic condition of all our people. It is simply not enough for an Alpha Man to obtain a college degree, still a larger task remains. An Alpha Man must provide sound leadership in his community, being committed to service. He is charged to lend a hand to his fellow man.
