Mandated Programs

In 1920 the National Conclave held in Nashville, TN., Carter G. Woodson inspired the establishment of National Achievement Week to promote the study of Negro life and history.  In 1945, Omega Psi Phi undertook a National Social Action Program to meet the needs of African-Americans in the areas of health, housing, civil rights, and education.  In the 1950's Omega men Spottswood Robinson, Oliver Hill and James Nabrit were part of the inner circle for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF). That group coordinated the court battles for racial equality. Their work culminated with the landmark decision outlawing segregated public schools, Brown v. Board of Education.
