Title

The Web 1983 "Phi Beta Sigma"

Description

This page in The Web 1983 features the first black fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma, at the University of Richmond. According to the Collegian article "Phi Beta Sigma Colonizes New Fraternity at Richmond," the creed of the fraternity is "we give another choice" as it offered cultural and social opportunities for black students. The fraternity also incorporated the tradition of stepping. Before the establishment of Phi Beta Sigma, only one black student was a member of a fraternity at the University of Richmond.
