PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA-02), a brother of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., will deliver the keynote address tomorrow for the 100th anniversary celebration of Alpha's Omicron Chapter at the University of Pittsburgh.

Tillman and Pitt Chancellor Mark A. Nordenberg.
Omicron Chapter was founded at Pitt on January 30, 1913, by seven of the University's 25 African American male students. Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., the nation's first African American Intercollegiate Greek-lettered fraternity, was founded in 1906 at Cornell University.
"Alpha Phi Alpha is important not just because it is the first and the oldest. And Omicron Chapter is important not just because it is the first chapter in Western Pennsylvania," Fattah said. "From its founding, Alpha has been at the forefront of efforts to encourage and assist young African-American men to go to college, stay in college, graduate and take on leadership roles in our nation."
Nationally, Alpha has established over 700 campus and alumni chapters. More than 200,000 men have joined Alpha, including nine current members of Congress and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., whose birthday celebration coincides with the Centennial Weekend at Pitt.
