About Us


SAAB (Student African-American Brotherhood) was founded in the fall of 1990 by Dr. Tyrone Bledsoe on the campus of Georgia Southwestern State University. SAAB has accepted the demanding challenges of needs of African-American males in the country and is now a national organization with chapters on campuses such as North Carolina Central University, the University of Texas in Austin, North Carolina Wesleyan College, and of course, Ohio University.

OU’s chapter was founded in 1999. Aside from being one of the few organizations available here in Athens, Ohio, for minority males, it prides itself for beginning such traditions as the annual Penny Drive and Tribute to Mothers.

The organization bases its foundation on its mission statement:  “In order to empower ourselves and promote brotherhood, we, the members of Student African-American Brotherhood, embrace the principles of accountability, self-discipline, proactive leadership, and intellectual development. Through our faith in God, we uphold this mission at all times.  I am my brother’s keeper, and together, we will rise!”  It is by this principle that we operate.
