Educationally, socially, economically, politically, and culturally African-American Collegiate Greek Lettered Fraternities and Sororities have extensively contributed to society. For over 100 years they continue to make these contributions through their foundational values of brotherhood/sisterhood, academic excellence and community service. Despite this fact, the general public still knows very little about their historical significance and major contributions that these organizations, and its members, have made throughout the world. The Miseducation of the Black Greek XPERIENCE is a very interactive and engaging presentation that ultimately answers the question: "What is a Black Greek Lettered Organization?" The facilitator directly addresses this by shattering the stereotype that the Divine Nine primarily focuses on stepping and social activities. It addresses this by creatively incorporating and blending music, Black History, audience participation and demonstrations, African traditions and customs and the mass media's influences through pop culture to illustrate the evolution of these organizations.
