**Winner - Outstanding Alumni Chapter - Gulf Coast Region - 2010-2015**


Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., on January 9, 1914, by three African American male students. The founders, Honorable A. Langston Taylor, Honorable Leonard F. Morse, and Honorable Charles I. Brown, wanted to organize a Greek-letter fraternity that viewed itself as one with a greater brotherhood devoted to the "inclusive we" rather than the "exclusive we."

From its inception, the founders also conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to the general community. Rather than gaining skills to be utilized exclusively for themselves and their immediate families, the founders of Phi Beta Sigma held a deep conviction that they should return their newly acquired skills to the communities from which they had come.

103 years later, Phi Beta Sigma continues to blossom as an international organization of leaders. No longer a single entity, members of the Fraternity have been instrumental in the establishment of the Phi Beta Sigma National Foundation, the Phi Beta Sigma Federal Credit Union and The Sigma Beta Club Foundation. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., founded in 1920 with the assistance of Phi Beta Sigma, is the sister organization of the Fraternity.

Please join the Brothers of Eta Rho Sigma Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma on Saturday, March 18th at Kitchen 713 Restaurant - 4601 Washington Ave. Suite #130, Houston, TX  77007 to dine and raise funds for the John Lewis Documentary Project. This film will record important history for many generations featuring our fraternity brother Congressman John Lewis. We will help make it happen, so stop by and hang out with us! 



Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is proud to serve as a sponsor of The John Lewis Documentary Project, a story of our own Sigma Brother John E. Lewis. This is the first of two major fund raising campaigns, along with The Smithsonian Institute’s National Museum of African American History & Culture, that the Fraternity is excited to support.  John Lewis’ life as a preeminent and highly influential Civil Rights activist, Congressional leader and international icon of human rights has never before been captured on film. Bro. Lewis is acknowledged by historians as having been a major force for positive change over the past half century.


                                            WHY DOES THIS DOCUMENTARY MATTER SO MUCH?

Bro. Lewis personifies the courage and willingness to sacrifice what characterized those who challenged the Jim Crow South and overcame desegregation. Their non-violent heroism transformed the nation and provided a model that motivates freedom seekers throughout the world. As an American icon and a Sigma Man, this documentary must be completed and displayed proudly in every home where equality is celebrated.
