NPHC donates book to Watson Library for Black History Month

Northwestern State University’s Pan-Hellenic Council commemorated Black History Month by donating a book to NSU’s Eugene P. Watson Memorial Library, a tradition that began six years ago. The book is titled “African American Fraternities and Sororities: The Legacy and the Vision.” From left are Javoante Batiste of Marksville, Jordan Aery of Shreveport, JaKayla Lee of Lafayette, Caleb Allen of Opelousas, Darius Brock of Shreveport, University Archivists Mary Linn Wernet and Sharon Wolff, Gabriel DeCuir of Bossier City, Jamien Sampson of Gonzales and Lydia Johnson of Baton Rouge. “We decided to buy a book as a council about the history of black fraternities and sororities and present it to the library, so students can have more insight on the meanings behind these distinct groups,” Decuir said. The National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) is a collaborative organization of nine historically African American, international Greek lettered fraternities and sororities.
