Dr. Rodney T. Cohen will be featured on Washington DC’s Pacifica Radio (WPFW 89.3 FM) on Thursday night July 28 at 7 p.m./EST. The topic of the night will be “Black Greeks in the 21st Century: Are they relevant and living up to their legacy?”, a heated discussion often brought up in African-American circles. Dr. Cohen recently brought a lot of attention to the issue with his UPTOWNMagazine.com article, “Black Fraternities at 100: Are They Fulfilling Their Legacy?”.
The article has brought about many mixed feelings on the issue – ranging from strong support to vehement opposition to Dr. Cohen’s POV – but has certainly stirred dialogue.
Ironically, the broadcast will fall on the eve of Omega Psi Phi’s Centennial Celebration.
Dr. Cohen is also the author of two successful books that explore the black collegiate experience, “Fisk University” and “The Black Colleges of Atlanta.”
