Jewels is unlike anything you have ever read as it pertains to the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. This book gives you the dialogue, the arguments, the laughter, the planning, and the founding of the fraternity 100 years ago. The book begins with a young Henry Callis in high school. He graduates and travels to Cornell University in Ithaca NY. In the book, all the founders (the 7 Jewels) meet each other. They establish the literary society under grad advisor C.C. Poindexter. They plan, they argue, they laugh and joke. Robert Harold Ogle even falls in love and gets married in March 1906. You will never see the Jewels the same after reading this book. The book concludes with a letter from each Jewel Founder to the fraternity now at this the 100th Anniversary.
