The Brothers of Eta Theta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc., would like to invite you to join us at our 34th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemorative Awards Luncheon celebrating the legacy of Dr. King and individuals in our communities who are living examples of the “DREAM”. We as Alpha men understand the ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. As Martin Luther King Jr., we must be resilient during these turbulent times and always do what is right not only for our families but for the world.
