Greetings Brothers!

The History and Archives Committee remembers, thanks, and honors all who served the cause of freedom. As expressed in his poem, “Negro Mother’s Cradle Song” that appeared in the June 1928 Oracle (attached), Col. Charles E. Young penned, “Teach him that you died that all might rise and run” – a qualified perspective on the purpose and importance of service and sacrifice.

Happy Memorial Day
