Radio personality launches web series that highlights the community service efforts and accomplishments of Black Greek Letter Organization graduate chapters and alumni members.
Grown and Greek TV aims to highlight alumni Greeks that have excelled in community service and in their personal careers.
Birmingham, Alabama — Alabama based radio personality and business woman Phaith “DJ Chocolate” Frazier has launched a national web series which highlights the philanthropic side of alumni Greek life. Grown and Greek TV was launched in the fall of 2017 and travels the country talking with alumni members of Black Greek Letter Organizations commonly referred to as the “Divine 9.” The primary objective of the web series is to share the community service efforts of the various organizations as well as the personal and philanthropic accomplishments of alumni members.
“If you look around any city you will find alumni chapters that are very active in the community as well as members that have achieved some phenomenal things. Our objective is the share these great stories with the world in hopes of educating the public on the substance behind Black Greek Letter Organizations and why they are so important to the communities they serve.” says Frazier.
Black Greek Letter Organizations or BGLOs can be found on many college campuses and in cities across the United States as Undergraduate Chapters and Graduate Chapters respectively. Chapters have also been established in countries outside of the United States. The BGLOs consist of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. (founded in 1906); Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (founded in 1908), Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. (founded in 1911); Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. (founded in 1911); Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. (founded in 1913); Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. (founded in 1914); Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. (founded in 1920); Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. (founded in 1922) and Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. (founded in 1963). These organizations collectively are known as the Divine 9 and are governed by the National Pan-Hellenic Council.
The Divine 9 Greek Community boasts over 2.5 million members which makes up almost 8 percent of the African American Community. Frazier’s mission with Grown and Greek TV is to share the community service initiatives and the personal accomplishments of the alumni members of the Divine 9 from around the country. The objective is to empower and inspire a movement of personal excellence and community service among the African American Community at large while connecting these organizations to public and private sector agencies that have similar objectives.
