Black Greek-letter sororities and fraternities have been a pivotal part of African American history and culture since the early 20th century. Launched on the campuses of historically black colleges, these organizations have been a central resource for support and service in the educational advancement and strengthening of social bonds.

The pioneer black Greek-letter organizations have become known as the Divine Nine , and among their ranks have been some of the most influential leaders of color in healthcare, education, fashion, business, global affairs, politics and other industries.
