I'm sure George Clinton's forever popular song "Atomic Dog" is in full effect around the country today as members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity don their purple and gold and celebrate the organization's 100-year anniversary!!
Celebrations are being held around the country this weekend in celebration of the centennial event.
The fraternity is the first African-American national fraternal organization to be founded at a historically black college.
Omega Psi Phi was founded on Nov. 17, 1911, at Howard University in Washington, D.C..
Since 1945, the fraternity has undertaken a National Social Action Program to meet the needs of African Americans in the areas of health, housing, civil rights, and education. Omega Psi Phi has been a patron of the United Negro College Fund (UNCF) since 1955, providing an annual gift of $50,000 to the program. Omega Psi Phi is a National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC) member.
Distinguished members of the organization include Steve Harvey, Tom Joyner, General Charles Bolden - NASA Director, Vernon Jordan, William "Bill" Cosby, Earl Graves, Sr., Jesse Jackson, Sr., the Honorable L. Douglas Wilder, Shaquille O'Neil, Vince Carter and Michael Jordan.
