  • Since the founding of Alpha Phi Alpha’s Sphinx magazine in 1914, the African-American community has looked to the publication for its profound insight on issues of the day. The Sphinx® is preserved in libraries and archives across the country as a historical record of occurrences in the community. The Sphinx® is the nation’s second oldest African-American publication still in existence.


    The Sphinx® Magazine has one goal: to be the source of innovative ideas for members/readers to utilize to create, lead, and transform their communities. Since its inception in 1914, The Sphinx® has a proud tradition of being one of the world's preeminent fraternal magazines, publishing cutting-edge, authoritative thinking on key issues facing today's communities.
