Central State Fraternity Holds March To Honor Legacy Of MLK

Members of Central State’s Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity held their annual march to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Fraternity members marched from the Central State University campus to downtown Xenia Monday.

“This annual march holds importance so we not only as African-American males but as blacks in these communities don’t forget our rich history and where we came from,” CSU Alpha member Kieth Matthews recently told HBCU Buzz. “We also can’t forget the things other people have done and sacrificed so we can live the lives that we live today.”

In 2016, Mayor Marsha J. Bayless proclaimed Jan. 18. as “Delta Xi Chapter Day” in the city of Xenia in appreciation of the Delta Xi Chapter as a sponsor of the MLK, Jr., March and for their service to the Xenia community over the years.
