The Brown University - Inman Page Black Alumni Council, named after one of Brown's first known African American graduates, is the Black affinity offshoot of the Brown Alumni Association. Currently, the National organization has created 4 local chapters in Atlanta, New York Metro, Philadelphia, and Washington DC.
"Inman Page Black Alumni Council is about power, Black power to be specific, the power of humanity to be even more specific. But let’s be clear about what we mean by power...I’m talking about the power to hold the University, and by extension, this country accountable to a vision of pluralism and full humanity. I’m talking about the kind of power that can build a university into a place where people think without boundaries, and learn to instinctively love and respect each other, a place where people, through reflex action, see the self-interest in sharing power with those around them. I’m talking about the power to build a university where a new generation of world citizens value non-American, non-white, non-western, and non-SUV-owning experiences and lives as much as their own."
-An excerpt from Mark Winston Griffith's (Class of 1985) Keynote address to the newly constituted IPC on Oct. 13, 2001

"Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the 2010 Black Alumni Reunion. I hadn't been back to Brown in thirty years. It was great to reconnect with friends and make new ones. I plan to be more involved with IPC and the University."
