Abstract

The objective of conducting this research was to assess the impact of Black collegiate fraternities upon Atlanta city politics.

Although Black collegiate fraternities were conceived to enrich the social and intellectual aspects of collegiate life, Black collegiate fraternities are emerging as a political force.

This thesis will attempt to assess, for the first time, the actual role in which Black collegiate fraternities have engaged from a political perspective.

The primary sources of information for this study were obtained from personal interviews of fraternity members, Atlanta City Clerk's Office, Fulton County Board of Elections and from fraternal journals and publications.
