Although this writer prefers the Tarheels of Chapel Hill, the attached article from the March 1962 Oracle is one Duke story I can get behind.
While watching the Heels take a thumping this past Saturday, my displeasure was momentarily assuaged when the camera cut away from the play on the court to focus its filter on "The Admiral" himself, NBA Hall of Fame Center David Robinson. Robinson was in attendance cheering on his son, Justin Robinson, a forward for the Duke Blue Devils. The whole scene reminded me of the aforementioned article that I had read some time ago and I thought I'd share it in recognition of Omega's manifest significance in the continuum of progress.
The article chronicles the integration of Duke Law School in 1961 by two Omega men, Walter T. Johnson, Jr. and a different David Robinson, one David Robinson II, a 1961 initiate of Kappa Psi chapter here in the mighty Third District.
Take a little time out of your day to read this uplifting account of Omega at work. Additional information on Brother Robinson can be found here https://law.duke.edu/news/david-robinson-ii-64/.
Make it a great week Brothers. Be Noble!
