In a move to highlight the meaning and power of Black fraternities, we at Watch The Yard reached out to our Instagram audience of over 239,000 followers and posed a question for the members of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.
Our question was simple,
What made you want to pledge Iota Phi Theta?
We followed it by asking the members current members how becoming an Iota has changed their lives.
The outpouring of passionate responses from the members who were eager to tell their stories was inspiring. It was very insightful to see that many of the men were drawn to the organization because of how the members championed individuality, hard work, service, not resting on laurels, and being approachable not only to each other but also to everyone they meet.
