Brother Joel Grey, President
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.,
Mu Lambda Chapter
“The Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity was organized to stimulate and unite promising young men for the leadership in the extension of American democracy in all fields. The fields of social and public service, the church, the lay, education, the medical profession, labor and the press, have all been molded by the leadership of these men.”
- Jewel Henry Arthur Callis, August 1956
Welcome to the home page of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Mu Lambda Chapter. Each member of Mu Lambda chapter is justifiably proud of our heritage, which includes the following -
Three Jewels (Founders) - Henry Arthur Callis, Nathaniel Allison Murray and Robert Harold Ogle -were members of the chapter. Jewels Murray and Ogle were charter members.
Six members were General Presidents of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
Two members were Eastern Region Vice Presidents, etc.
You are invited to look at the Legacy section of this web page for a listing of notable members of Mu Lambda.
Mu Lambda is equally proud of our present: younger brothers making their mark in the DMV community and beyond – entrepreneurs, activists, political leaders, philanthropists, academicians, ministers, etc. The diversity of the membership is a major plus as is the homogeny! We have many active members in their 20s, as well as some in their 90s, and all ages in between working together to maximize the synergism of Alpha men following the aims of our dear fraternity – Manly deeds, scholarship and love for all mankind!
Partnering with the Mu Lambda Foundation, Inc., a 501[C]3 corporation and the charitable entity of the chapter, we endeavor to inspire and assist today’s youth in their quest to make their mark in tomorrow’s history. Through community service projects and charitable events we diligently work in this metropolitan area. Your support is solicited as we continue our quest to aid those less fortunate to realize the American dream. Mu Lambda has always found a way to maximize the impact of the talents of its members for the benefit of the District’s citizens. Our motto still rings true – “Mu Lambda, making a difference in DC since 1923!”
