Greetings Smithites and Visitors.  In the 1930's, some 80 years ago, a small group of men from Johnson C. Smith University (JCSU) began meeting in Washington, DC to reminisce about their days at JCSU.  The founding fathers of this JCSU Alumni Chapter came from among that group; they wanted to bring more JCSU attendees together to help the University.
