The motto of the MALIK Fraternity is “The Mind is the standard of the man”. The MALIK mission is to educate members by imparting to them knowledge from African continental and cultural history, from African Diaspora history (meaning South America, Central America, North America, the Caribbean and the rest of the world), from Fraternal history, from fraternal literature and publications, and special study materials, in order to help them understand their role and responsibilities as men of African ancestry. It is the MALIK Fraternity, Inc. duty to educate the general public, particularly communities of color, about the interconnectedness of peoples of African ancestry and the understanding that the emancipation, development and prosperity of African and Afro-Latino peoples everywhere can only be achieved by an appeal to the African sense of "wholeness." This mission especially includes to serve and educate our communities we come from through socially responsible activism, advocacy, and programmatic endeavors that impact on their material, educational, political, and spiritual development.
