Join us for a celebration of the Alexander (Chuck, Saphrona, Tony, and Sharon) family's contributions to the City of San José, the Black Community in San José, and San José State University. Chuck Alexander was the founder of the Good Brothers House that provided housing to Black campus athletics due to discriminatory Jim Crow laws. Saphrona Alexander was not only his wife of many years and mother of Tony and Sharon Alexander but also a known local artist. Tony and Sharon Alexander have both been activist community leaders. The Alexander family has impacted the everyday lives of our SJSU students and San José community with a legacy of goodwill and social action.
