National Achievement Week is a mandated program of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., that was originally designed to promote the study of African American life and history. Its beginnings date back to the 1920 Grand Conclave in Nashville. It was at this Conclave that Brother Carter G. Woodson inspired the overall idea. In 1927, at his urging, the Fraternity made National Negro Achievement Week an annual observance. In 1976, this commemoration evolved into Black History Month. Presently, the Achievement Week Program is used to recognize those individuals at the local and national levels who have made significant contributions towards improving the quality of life for African Americans. The Beta Mu Nu Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was chartered August 29, 2013 and since then, the Chapter has been a pillar of support in the Shelby County community. The Chapter has won numerous awards, including multiple Chapter of the Year, Social Action Chapter of the Year, Fatherhood Initiative, and various other awards showing the magnificent work that is done by the chapter.To register for the event, see "access the event" box to the right please click the Zoom link at the bottom of the page.
