Happy Birthday #51 Iota Phi Theta Fraternity Inc.
Today 51 years ago 12 defiant, honorable, and thought seeking men sought a new path for Greek fellowship. Born out of lifelong friendships they sought a different path of expanded brotherhood. They choose to meet on the steps of the historic Hurt Gymnasium on the campus of Morgan State College to found this new organization. The organization of men aligned to the shield, it's five impactful stars, and colors brown and gold. Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. was the name and building new traditions was there aim.
I pledged at Iotas Alpha-Chapter in 1974 and I'm currently a brother of Beta Phi Omega Chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the latest and greatest fraternity in the land!
