Join the Brothers of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. as we celebrate the vast accomplishments of the Black woman throughout history and the impact they have had in our lives.

This year’s theme is Political and Social Activism. In these challenging times, we feel it is appropriate to salute Black women who are hard-working, outspoken, and courageously fighting for women’s rights and rights of all Americans. 

We will have guest speakers from Alpha Kappa Alpha, Delta Sigma Theta, Zeta Phi Beta, and Sigma Gamma Rho Sororities. They will share the amazing work their organizations do in the realm of politics and social activism. 

There will also be a special presentation: Rape Culture in the Black Community. Last month, 3 men and 3 women had a deep and enriching conversation about this serious issue, leading to greater understanding...and it was all captured on video. Click here to hear Dr. Tricia Callender speaking about Black male privilege in a preview of Sunday’s presentation.

In addition, we will be presenting the 2017 Olive Campbell Woman of the Year Award to Tamika D. Mallory, Co-Chair of the Women’s March on Washington and former Executive Director of the National Action Network. 

The award is named for Olive Campbell, the recently departed mother of one of our fraternity brothers. She was a staple in her community and supported the fraternity’s efforts at every turn. As a West Indian immigrant, she came to this country for a better life and, in turn, made this country a better place in her own way. It is that spirit and tradition for which this award is named. 

This free program is open to everyone. We sincerely hope you can join us.
