An article in The Crimson White, the student newspaper of the University of Alabama at Tuscaloosa, has set off considerable concern with its allegations that sororities at the institution reject potential members who are black. The article details the attempts of two black women with the credentials and characteristics sororities say they value who were the latest to fail to break what the newspaper called "an almost impenetrable color barrier." The national Pi Beta Phi, one of the sororities whose Alabama chapter was mentioned in the article, told USA Today that the organization was starting an investigation of the allegations. A black board member at Alabama is calling for the university to investigate.
