Wednesday, September 20th was Phi Beta Sigma night during CBC! Over 200 Sigma Brothers, Zeta Sisters, fellow greeks and congressional leaders came out to celebrate the Honorable John R. Lewis’ Distinguished Service Chapter Reception at the Marriott Marquis Hotel. The much anticipated event showcased a video that highlighted the accomplishments of the Civil Rights Legend. Hosted by Brother Courtney Souvenir, President of Sigma Sigma Sigma Chapter (Bro. Lewis’ chapter), the program also featured remarks from past presidents Hon. Carter D. Womack, Hon. William E. Stanley, Jr., and Peter Adams, President of DSC and International President Micheal Cristal.
Paparazzi, and guests alike, rushed to the podium to take history-making photos of Hon. Brother Lewis receiving his DSC Medallion and DSC Certificate by Hon. Bro. Peter M. Adams, past president and current DSC President. Brother Lewis was clearly moved by the induction, festivities and outpouring of elation from the fraternity members and special guests in attendance.
