Greater Boston NPHC Chapters
Greater Boston NPHC will continue to say loudly, clearly, and unapologetically that BLACK LIVES MATTER!!
message from the president
It is an honor to be the President of the Greater Boston National Pan-Hellenic Council (GBNPHC) as we make an impact on the community by collaborating with social programming, informational events and supporting Black businesses in and beyond the city of Boston. The GBNPHC is comprised of 9 Historically Black Greek Letter Organizations also known as “The Divine Nine”. It is imperative that we all promote “Unity in the Community” and to never forget where we came from. Collectively, we share the philosophy of service for the betterment of our people. I believe that it is extremely important to reflect this philosophy within Massachusetts so that others may become authentic gatekeepers in turn. Furthermore, the community, in particular Black and Brown communities, need to show the upcoming generations our rich and unique history here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
As a native of Boston and member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. - Delta Omicron Zeta Chapter, I always had a drive to consistently be involved in my community and to connect with other organizations to ensure a bigger impact on the community at large. We as a people have always endured tough times and continue to do so. Yet with COVID-19, triggering racial divides within the country, the GBNPHC still continues to take on our responsibilities within our villages. The GBNPHC understands that we cannot afford to sit back and just allow issues to be, but partake in the solutions by educating ourselves so we can be each other’s keeper in our villages. It is not about titles, it is about how you can lead, support, and inspire others - “Unity in the Community”.
