Are African American Fraternities Beating Themselves to Death?
Ruffins, Paul
Black Issues in Higher Education, v14 n8 p18-25 Jun 12 1997
Beating of pledges, frequently leading to lawsuits and sometimes to death, has become a serious problem in black fraternities. Although black fraternities officially cracked down on hazing in 1990 in response to a student's death, many fear underground hazing has become even more dangerous. Incidents occur both on black and on white campuses. Poorly controlled fraternity housing is a factor. (MSE)
