description
Hazing has been a persistent issue within National Pan-Hellenic Council Organizations—the nine, major black Greek-letter organizations (“BGLOs”)—for generations. It is an issue that many of the organizations’ leaders and members as well as commentators and critics believe will result in the ultimate demise of these groups. While BGLO hazing has persisted in some shape or form since the early parts of the 20th Century, efforts to end it have been, largely, fruitless. From the perspective of Gregory S. Parks, JD, PhD—author of Invictus: Hazing and the Future of Black Greek-letter Organizations—a significant reason why hazing within BGLOs has not been curtailed is because the organizations have been ineffective in appreciating the nuances of the issue. In essence, they look at it through the lens of, simply, problematic undergraduates and a handful of enabling alumni members. However, there are myriad of difficult questions that BGLOs must grapple with if they are to make any true progress toward a solution for hazing.
