The Meeting Of These 12 Black Men Took Place
Imparting Knowledge
Feeding A Movement
Creating The Wave
That Rushed Through This Nation
That's 12, my BROTHERS
yes,
That's 12, you made the move
yes,
That's 12, who started the Iota Whirlwind
yes,
That's 12, who were on a mission of BROTHERHOOD
yes
So today September 19, 2019, at 5:55 we honor those 12 Founders
For the Founding of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity
We honor Anthony Watson for his eternal sacrifice
We honor AUDREY BROOKS for her tireless efforts in building our Dream.
We honor Ron Jones, Tex Dean, and multiple more for the monument
of granite and stone
That honors the 12 for foresight and might
We honor all the brothers who kept Iota's dream right
We honor all the brothers who kept up the fight
We honor all the brothers who continue to keep Iota's brotherhood tight
We honor all those Brothers who have passed on to Alpha Iota Omega light
Finally, we honor YOU the BROTHERS of IOTA PHI THETA FRATERNITY who also like the FOUNDERS saw something UNIQUE, BOLD, and DYNAMIC
And made the decision to bring Iota Phi Theta into your lives
You see the journey continues and dream thrives
As we continue to place our shield in other men's lives
