MALIK Fraternity, Incorporated was founded on May, 13th 1977 out of the minds and hearts of 15 young men attending the C.W. Post campus of Long Island University in the milieu of the Civil Rights Era. The very nature of the sociopolitical landscape at the time demanded the birth of MALIK and dictated what this new organization would be about. Cultural pride in Africa, the cradle of humanity, formed the backdrop of the consciousness that the organization would uphold as it strove to develop community servants to restore agency to under served Black and Latino communities. Forty-eight years later the brotherhood continues to expand its ranks with community minded and professionally driven individuals with a strong commitment to social responsibility.
