Happy Founders Day to the Brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.!

Today, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is celebrating 104 years of continuous Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service!

Founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., on January 9, 1914, three young African-American male students set to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship and service. A. Langston Taylor, Leonard F. Morse and Charles I. Brown conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a medium to deliver services to the general community. This deep conviction was mirrored in the Fraternity’s motto, “Culture For Service and Service For Humanity.”

Now comprised of 150,000 college-educated men, the organization continues to improve the global community through the development of four main programs: Bigger and Better Business, Education, Social Action and Sigma Beta Clubs that embrace mentoring, scholarship and community initiatives. A few notable members include Terrance Howard, Albert L. Roker, the Rev. Al Sharpton Jr., Malik Yoba, Blair Underwood, Emmitt J. Smith, III and Scottie Pippen.
