Achievement Week

Bro. Walter Neighbors, Chairman




National Achievement Week is a mandated program of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., that was originally designed to promote the study of African American life and history.  It's beginnings date back to the 1920 Grand Conclave in Nashville.  It was at this Conclave that Bro. Carter G. Woodson inspired the overall idea.  In 1927, at his urging, the Fraternity made National Negro Achievement Week an annual observance.  In 1976, this commemoration evolved into Black History Month.  Presently, the Achievement Week Program is used to recognize those individuals at the local and national levels who have made significant contributions toward improving the quality of life for African Americans.


 Objectives of the Observance

  • To focus attention on outstanding achievement, not only by giving appropriate recognition to those who have achieved, but also by stimulating others to gain even higher eminence.
  • To implement our democratic way of life by emphasizing that all people must be judged by their accomplishments and their service to mankind, regardless of nationality, religion, or race.
  • To raise the prestige of Omega by providing a worthwhile project to which our chapter may direct its energies; this united effort should stimulate and enrich the communities where Omega Psi Phi Chapters are located.
