Sons of Africa is an affinity group open to African and Latino men, among other men of color at Haverford College.
Historically, men of color have been relatively underrepresented in educational institutions such as our own. The purpose of Sons of Africa (SOA) is to create a comfortable, safe, and supportive Brotherhood for men of color in the Haverford College community. Sons of Africa is only open to men of color, but the exclusive nature of the group is not meant to be divisive in a community that is generally harmonious. It is to provide a network in which students of color can address issues that affect them without the fear of controversy.
