    Knowing our history strengthens our resolve in the future

    This was a very well written and informative book. This book has helped me make a decision that will become part of my life forever. Anyone looking to join a historically black fraternity or sorority should read this book! Take time to research whatever decision you plan to make.

    I read this book while I was pursuing my sorority and I can't tell you how much it helped me. I learned a lot of things in Divine Nine that not only sealed my dedication to my organization, but it has given all African-Americans whom are members of these organizations a sense of pride.
