Has anyone ever heard of Jack and Jill of America? Its supposed to be a social group that has different chapters throughout the states and they do conventions and events for African American children and families but you have to be selected for membership into the group. Has anyone ever joined Jack and Jill or known anyone who has because I was thinking of joining myself so any thoughts at all would be helpful. Thanks!

In the other thread, MBM said he was a member of J&J.

You see how self-loathing and snobbish he turned out! He even founded africanamericaexceptforyoupo-assghettonegroez.org! lol

But seriously. GlamourDoll, it sounds like from your posts that you are a young high school girl who isn't growing up around a lot of black people. I was not in Jack&Jill (and I grew up in an all-black neighborhood). But you seem like exactly the type of kid who would benefit from J&J. I know Shango said the same thing out of disrespect (how young does a child have to be for an adult not to attack her verbally like she's a peer?), but the kind of mindset he's displaying is exactly why you would benefit from a group like J&J. I hate to say it, but it does appear that a lot of black people who are more 'hood aren't going to accept you, or understand you. But you still need to be around black people. That's where a J&J would come in.

Check out the link Ma'am posted above. If you pursue J&J, let us know how it goes!

Just don't want you to think everyone around here is hostile ...

Actually Vox, I seriously think she would benefit from the organization because of her personality. It was NOT an attack.

Glamour Doll would not be ready for the Nation of Islam, the New Black Panther Party, or the Shrine of the Black Madonna. She would be better able to meet Black folks who can accept or multiculural tone. So, Jack and Jill would be a place where she could meet people LIKE her. A safe place to explore Black culture. It ain't for me, but it is better to be organized.

And when she gets to college, maybe she would be an AKA... even though I prefer Deltas.

I stand corrected, my bad. We agree wholeheartedly. Not just on her readiness for J&J vs. the others u point out, but also on the Deltas, even though I'm not Greek...
Thanks everyone for your responses as of now I'm not going to joing anything right away because of college and all. I am thinking of going through greek rush to join a sorrority and I've seen some of the sorroritys so far like our AKA's got kicked off campus for hazing so the AKA sorrority is no more, but we do have zeta phi beta and deltas. I'm going to take a look at all the sorrorities before I join like my two friends are tri deltas so I'm going to check out their house and the others.
