Alpha Phi Alpha, Xi Delta Lambda chapter
An alleged hazing incident took place in Blackwell Elementary School on April 7 during the district’s spring break. The incident involved grown men running around a gymnasium wearing only g-strings and covered in baby oil, NBC12 reports.
Richmond Public Schools reportedly sent a letter home to parents describing the incident and stated a full investigation is underway. Blackwell Principal Daryl Roselle is at the center of the controversy for allegedly allowing the men inside to engage in the reported hazing ritual.
The fraternity under scrutiny in the scandal is Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., the first black greek intercollegiate fraternity founded Dec. 4, 1906. The scandal involved members from its Xi Delta Lambda chapter.
“Swift action has been taken to resolve this manner,” Felicia Cosby, the spokeswoman for the city school system, told USAToday.
