Jones, Ricky L.
Challenge: A Journal of Research on African American Men, v10 n1 p1-33 Win-Spr 1999
Examines the problem of pledging and hazing in black Greek-letter fraternities (BGFs). BGFs remain because they are popular for gaining acceptance. Notes the role of narrative in keeping hazing alive. Discusses power, hegemony, and domination; the traditional pledge process versus membership intake programs; the effect of conservatism and domination; and BGF ruling blocs and the membership intake epidemic.
