Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity was founded at Howard University in Washington, D.C., January 9, 1914, by three young 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 would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service. From its inception, the Founders also conceived Phi Beta Sigma as a mechanism to deliver services to
the general community. Alpha Alpha Beta Sigma Metropolitan Detroit Alumni Chapter www.DetroitSigmas.com / www.godetroitsigmas.comis committed to the educational achievement of Detroit’s youth. This deep conviction is mirrored in the Fraternity’s motto, “Culture For Service
and Service For Humanity”. Nearly, starting it second century of service, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. is led by its newly elected 34th International President, the Honorable Jonathan A. Mason Sr. and has blossomed into an international organization of leaders committed to proactive community service. To this end, dedicated members of Alpha Alpha Beta Sigma of Metro Detroit work hard locally, as an extension of the vision of our Founders. Each year, we provide professional programs in the areas of Education, Social Action and Bigger and Better Business.
