Sigma Chapters Around the World

One of the strengths of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. has been the global reach of our membership. We have had chapters in foreign countries since 1950. Here are the countries that have Sigma chapters: Switzerland, Nigeria, U.S. Virgin Islands, Bahamas, Japan, Liberia, Germany, Korea and even Hawaii and Alaska (I know they are part of the United States, but they are so far away!).

Phi Beta Sigma has produced at least 11 international leaders from foreign countries:

  • Nnamdi Azikiwe, Former 1st President of Nigeria
  • William Tubman, Former President of Liberia
  • William Tolbert, Former President of Liberia
  • Kwame Nkrumah, Former President of Ghana
  • Sir Winston Scott, Former Governor and General of the Barbados, West Indies
  • Dr. Melvin Herbert Evans, Former Governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands

  • Phenton O. Neymour, Member of the Bahamas Parliament serving as Minister of State for Public Utilities

I have reviewed several membership directories and old Crescent magazines and we have brothers living around the world: Bermuda, Canada, Jamaica, Saint Kitts Nevis, Saudi Arabia, Belgium, Denmark, Holland, Trinidad and Tobago, Zambia, Gambia, Italy, Puerto Rico, and West Indies. I personally know we have members who are from numerous Asian countries.

So if you really want to promote Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., make it known that we are the “true” international fraternity with a worldwide diverse membership!
