Sigma Men come from a proud lineage of social justice advocates. We at WatchTheYard.com have worked with members of Phi Beta Sigma to create an iconic shirt pays homage notable members of the fraternity who have paved the way for Black people in the past.
The shirt that we created simply displays the last names of the following members of Phi Beta Sigma, with the intention that people will walk up to you when you wear it and ask you what it means. This will give you the opportunity to give them a short Black history lesson, a lesson about Phi Beta Sigma and a lesson about social justice all at the same time.
The shirt includes the names of the following activists:
Bro. Kwame Nkrumah – First President of Ghana and leader in the Pan-African movement.
Bro. Huey P. Newton – Activist and revolutionary who co-founded the Black Panther Party.
Bro. A. Philip Randolph – Prominent leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement and the American Labor Movement as well as the man behind the March on Washington.
Bro. John Lewis -Congressman and chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), playing a key role in the struggle to end legalized racial discrimination and segregation.
Bro. Harry Belafonte- American singer, songwriter, actor, and social activist.
Wear this shirt with pride and a reminder that you come from a legacy of activists who would want you to keep pushing for social justice.
