David Kilroy, Ph.D. faculty in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS), was an invited speaker to provide a talk on Colonel Charles Young to the George Mason University chapter of Omega Psi Phi, the nation’s oldest black fraternity.
Among his accomplishments, Young was the third African American to graduate from West Point and the first to achieve the rank of colonel. He was an honorary inductee into the fraternity and he remains a figure of great significance and inspiration to its members just over a hundred years later. Kilroy’s talk was based on his book, For Race and Country: The Life and Career of Colonel Charles Young,” (Praeger 2003).
