Salon: Bama to end segregated sororities

"The surprisingly long overdue move comes one week after the school’s newspaper, The Crimson White, told the explosive tale of a promising black student who 'didn’t receive a bid from any of the 16 Panhellenic sororities during formal recruitment.' In the feature, writers Abbey Crain and Matt Ford  quoted a sorority member who said her chapter, Alpha Gamma Delta, had declined to even take a vote on the girl. And a Tri Delta member said that other houses 'wanted to pledge the recruit and were also hindered by alumnae members.'"
