Reclaiming Our Legacy with Panel Moderator Karl Benson
January 11 @ 10:30 am - 1:00 pm
On Saturday, January 11, 2020 the men of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated will celebrate 106 years of Brotherhood, Scholarship, and Service at our Founders
Day Celebration. This year our theme is “Reclaiming Our Legacy” and the event will take place in St. Paul, MN at the Paul Wellstone Center – 179 Robie St. E, St Paul, MN 55107, from 10:30am – 1:00pm. With this event we hope to uplift leaders in service to community, acknowledge a few of our brothers who have exemplified good stewardship of our Fraternity, and build collective appreciation for the importance of cultivating and preserving the legacy both for our Fraternity and for our community.
Legacy is a powerful concept that resonates because it represents both the history that brought us to where we are today, and the possibilities of what may come tomorrow. The barbershop is one of the most constant institutions in Black communities throughout the world – one of the primary keepers of culture that help build and sustain legacy. To honor this truth our keynote will host a panel of barbershop owners who can speak to the role of building and maintaining such a sacred space.
