History of the Detroit Alumni Chapter

The Detroit Chapter was the first to be organized as an alumni chapter of the Alabama State University, during the latter part of the 1940s.  The need was great at this time, for those who had been fortunate enough to attend or graduate from the University to band together.  This effort was to ensure that no young person desirous of developing or expanding his/her scholastic skills would be turned away due to lack of funds.

During and immediately after World War II many Blacks migrated to the north from the south in search of better economic opportunities.  Many who migrated were teachers from the historic Alabama State University.

By word of mouth, a few determined and courageous Alabama State University graduates spread the news rapidly that an alumni chapter was to be started in Detroit.  After the birth of the Detroit Chapter, surrounding states and states all over the country began forming alumni chapters.  Today, we are indeed proud of the accomplishments being made by all the chapters.  These chapters makes up our illustrious National Alumni Association of the Alabama State University.
