Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated (ΦΒΣ) is a historically African-American intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity. It was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C. on January 9, 1914, by three young African-American male students with nine other Howard students as charter members.


The fraternity's founders, Abram Langston Taylor, Leonard Frances Morse, and Charles Ignatius Brown, wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would exemplify the ideals of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service while taking an inclusive perspective to serve the community
