District History

After the Fraternity was established in 1906, it took almost a score of years for it to be established in Florida. The first chapter to be chartered in Florida was the Upsilon Lambda Chapter in Jacksonville on December 30, 1925. Twelve years later two alumni chapters, Beta Beta Lambda and Beta Delta Lambda, were chartered in Florida. The first college chapter to be chartered in Florida was Beta Nu at Florida A&M College on April 23, 1932.

The Florida Federation of Alpha Chapters was formed in 1950 with the leadership of its 1st District Director, the Brother Reverend Moses G. Miles. Since then Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has grown to 41 chapters throughout the State of Florida, the Virgin Islands and the Bahamas.

Today the brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. hold steadfast to the fraternity mission of developing leaders, promoting brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. Click here for a list of the Florida Federation of Alpha Chapters.
