A TRUE BROTHERHOOD ...FOR LIFE

Serving Oakland, CA, and all of humanity

The Alpha Nu Sigma Chapter was founded in 1947 in Oakland, California, by Bro. Andrew McCarter. Bro. McCarter’s ingenuity has led to an abundance of Sigma men in Northern California whose reach ranges from Sacramento to Fresno. For over 70 years, the chapter has been a driving force in Northern California, with its chapter members actively engaged in local government, law enforcement, business, the faith-based community, commerce, media and education.

A STRONG LEGACY...A CENTURY OF SERVICE

For over 100 years, our fraternity has exemplified the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship and service. When our founders created our organization on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C., they desired for our fraternity to exist as part of an even greater brotherhood, which would be devoted to the “inclusive we” rather than the “exclusive we.”

If you’re a Sigma in the Bay Area or you’re looking for a way to make a bigger impact on the community, join a chapter that is on the move. Our programs include:

Our fraternity has an established tradition of rewarding students who have the intellect and desire to pursue a higher education. Each year, the chapter supports the academic efforts of our youth by awarding scholarships to area high school male seniors. The award is $1,000 per academic year.

A Message from the Chapter President

“Just like our Bro. Huey P. Newton and the Black Panthers did before, my aim is to make our chapter more socially active and dedicated to uplifting our community, especially in Oakland.”
