Our Purpose

Bro. William Tubman (Liberia) talks with Bro. Kwame Nkrumah (Ghana)

"These two powerful men will have a great deal to say about the future of West Africa. They are both Sigmas and if they wish to broaden the base of their discussion and include the destiny of their neighbor, the great land of Nigeria, they have only to call in their Brother Nnamdi Azikiwe, Prime Minister of East Nigeria. The Neru of West Africa.

 

How did it happen that these three rulers are all members of Phi Beta Sigma? What attracted them to this Fraternity? What do they see in it? What is the central idea? How did it get started? What has it accomplished? What has it meant to the thousands of sons of Sigma scattered over the North American mainland, the West Indian islands and now the continent of Africa? What has Sigma meant to other men, who are not Sigmas?"           

*("Our Cause Speeds On" by Bros. L. D. Reddick and W. S. Savage)

 

 

Our goal is to introduce that which attracted these great men, and numerous others, to our wondrous band. We will also give our communities an inside view of Sigma's rich history. A history that called upon great men to help speed our cause on and work to improve our communities.

 

We encourage all men of Sigma to assist us in keeping our history alive for future generations. It is from our rich past that we gain the inspiration to forge an even greater future.
