Who we are:The Pi Mu Mu Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. was established in 2011

mentoring program slated to begin in the Fall of 2012.

supporting presence for at-risk youth, but also take a leadership position on addressing
critical health issues; especially those that disproportionately affect the African-
American community.

Thunder Soul Movie

It's was Afros and pleated shirts, James Brown and Bootsy Collins. It was the '70s, and at an inner-city Houston high school history would be made. Charismatic band leader, Conrad "Prof" Johnson, would turn the school's mediocre jazz band into a legendary funk powerhouse. Now, 35 years later, his students prepare to pay tribute to the man who changed their lives--the 92-year old Prof. Some haven't played their horns in decades, still they dust off their instruments, determined to retake the stage to show Prof and the world that they've still got it. Written by Anonymous

Told with style and pizzazz, the rousing documentary Thunder Soul celebrates the Kashmere Stage Band, a worldwide sensation in the 1970s that will forever change the way you think about high school bands. When Conrad O. Johnson, a music teacher at a predominantly black high school in Houston, replaced the staid stage band standards with contemporary funk, jazz, and original compositions, he changed the lives of his students forever. Not only did they become one of the best bands, professional or amateur, around, but they learned lessons that stayed with them long after graduation, as evidenced thirty-five years later, when the band reunited to pay tribute to the man who made it all possible.

When: Friday, July 29th, 2011 Time: 9am-2pm Where: Howard University

Overview:
On July 29, 2011 there will be a mentor program entitled Project ASPIRATION that will be held at the historical Howard University in conjunction with the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Centennial Celebration. The centennial will attract more than 50,000 participants from all over the world. Our program will expose 250 black males ages 13 to 18 from all over the country to a variety of careers and life skills rooted in the cardinal principles of Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift. The program will focus on careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and ways to prepare for success in those fields.

This one-day event will feature four interactive sessions lead by Brothers in the fields of STEM. The Brothers will engage the student participants (referred to as “Scholars”) about ways science, technology, engineering and math impact their everyday life and their duty to self, family and community.

Goldboot's Facebook Interview with Senior Troy Butler

Troy graduated from Camden Academy Charter High School and played Football for Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden New Jersey,

During Troy's rare breaks from academics and football, he enjoys spending time with his family, and kickin’ the Beach Bruhz.

Entering your last season on the gridiron for the Monmouth Scots as defensive back tell us how you are doing ,


GB: If there is one thing you could change about yourself what would it be?
TB: I would change my view on reading, I don’t like to read, my mother love to read. I wish I got that trait from her

GB: What would be the perfect Pre Game meal?
TB: grilled BBQ chicken breast with blue cheese on the side, mashed potatoes, fresh garden salads, with French dressing, fresh cut pineapples, and a sports drink.

GB: If you could watch any college game day what would it be?
TB: the replay of a game that I just played in

GB: What was your most embarrassing Football moment?
TB: should not be telling you this, but it was in high school, night game at timber creek high, start of the 3rd quarter, I had to use the bathroom, #2. Ran off the field coaches thought I was hurt, I told them no I have to use the bathroom. So I had to run all the way inside use the bathroom then run back out. On my way out coach sent someone to find me but I was already on my way back to the field. They called a time out to try and waste time, I played DE and OT both ways and my back up was not getting the job down. I got back by the end of the time out, and we won the game

GB: If you could retire today what would you do with the rest of your life?
TB: coach high school ball in an urban city. I want to help the black youth, and travel on the off season

GB: What Bruhz do you look up to and why?
TB: have to start with the founder, without them I would not be a Man of Omega, 2nd would be William G Anderson, one of my chapter brothers. He is a man that worked for society as a teacher uplifting the youth and also works for the frat and big advocate for the young brothers at Monmouth University, another reason why I am an Omega Man today. 3rd Terik Tidwell, another brother who works hard for the frat and in life.

GB: What is your pre game ritual or warm up?
TB: listen to music, then this year the last song I listen to before it is time to go out is Dog got E, by Kevin McCall

GB: Where do you see yourself in 8 years?
TB: a member of the NJ state police, heavily active in my fraternity, and thoughts of starting a family

GB: Besides football, what is something else you have passion for?
TB: collecting Monopoly board games,

GB: What is your favorite TV show or pastime?
TB: House

GB: If you could describe yourself in one word what would it be?
TB: unselfish

GB: What are you looking forward to the most this year besides graduation?
TB: working to start An undergrad chapter of Omega Psi Phi fraternity Inc at Monmouth U

GB: What made you choose Monmouth over all the programs that were recruiting you?
TB: good school, winning program, and gave me the most money

GB: What is your favorite part about game day?
TB: the fact that I get to hit ppl

GB: What is your favorite tradition?
TB: Christmas dinner at my house, time when the entire family comes together

GB: What is your major and what do you plan on doing after graduation assuming that you don’t go to the NFL?
TB: I am a criminal justice major; my main goal is to one day get a federal job in law enforcement

GB: Describe a perfect day.
TB: any day that the Lord blesses me to wake up. What I would do on that day? Spend time with my family and friends: talk, eat, play cards, and just have fun

GB: How important is it to give back to the community and what you would plan to do?
TB: giving back is what my life is bases off of, my grandmother told me to always be a leader. Do well in school so my younger cousins can see what good can come from doing well in school. I have taken that thought and applied it to life, I work hard in my life to show the children in my community what they can do if they just work for it. I come from Camden just like them and my family is med to low class just like most of the families in Camden. I also know people wit worst stories then I and they made their way out of Camden and did something positive with their life.

I've gotten the calls, the emails, even run up on in the streets...

"I didn't get my $35 ticket(s), what can I do now to get on the boat?"

Well, there's good news and bad news.

Let's start with the bad: $35 tix: wrap city. No way. No how. Next question.

The GREAT: you can STILL get your tickets (we only have about 100 left because folks ATE UP the $35 joints) for the boatride at $60 until we sell owt..and we are going to sell owt!

Visit www.epsilonchapter.org for the paypal flow & I'll see you on the pier!!!

Omega Weekend NYC 2009 *Recession Proof Pricing* Why Pay More??? DEADLINE 7/21!!!!

All-

It's time for everyone's favorite weekend of summer! The countdown has
begun and in less than a month, NYC Omega Weekend will be here. The
boatride is Aug. 7th and we're bringing the Drip back on the 8th at the
frat house (sorry, the Y is no longer an option). The original Cruise
with the Ques is back as the Mighty Empire of Erotic Epsilon Chapter,
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. continues in it's celebration of 90 years
of doing what we do best.

Every year we tell folks to get their tickets in advance. Every year,
people wait till the pier and scramble to get a ticket on the night of.
Well, this year we're switching it up.

For a limited time (till 7/21) a LIMITED number of boat ride tickets
will be available for a special "throwback" price of $35. Yup. $35. Yes,
we are still having food on the boat. Of course we will have the best
DJs and tunes on the boat. (no, we are not having it on a paddle boat.
LOL). This is something special we are doing to say "THANK YOU" to all
those who have supported us through the years.

So tell a friend to tell a friend. These tickets will not last at this
price! I've been on SEVERAL other boat rides and, no disrespect, you
won't get what you get partying with them when you party with the NYC
Ques...and you damn sure won't get it for $35!

So get your tickets now and tell all your friends to get theirs, too. It
may be a recession but we can still have a good time!

Tom Mayfield Sr


The Tom Mayfield Sr. Scholarship Breakfast is Saturday, June 13, 2009 at 8AM at the Ramblewood Country Club in Mt. Laurel.

Contact Bro. Guy Williams guy.williams@ibx.com for ticket information.

For decades the Tuskegee Airmen of World War II were largely ignored and denegrated despite official desegration of the U.S. military in 1948.

But eventually, starting in the 1980s, the recognition and honors began rolling in at national and local levels.

Retired Lt. Col. Thomas Mayfield of Willingboro flew Tuskegee fighter planes escorting U.S. bombers over Europe.

“It’s always a great day when we can honor the Tuskegee Airmen and all our veterans who persevered to protect our freedom.

Mayfield, a West Virginia native, has called Willingboro home since retiring from the Air Force in 1971. He later worked 15 years as a special ed teacher in Pemberton.

Mayfield came lives with his wife Barbara.

“I was in my third year of college when some of my friends said we should enlist, so I went with them,” he said. “Later that day, I decided I didn’t want to go, but the recruiting officer said I had signed the papers and that was that.” By 10 p.m. he was on a train heading for Ohio.

Mayfield tells stories about the harassment and discrimination they endured, and how the Tuskegee Airmen had to fight for the right to serve and even die.

“Perseverance got us through,” Mayfield said. “We stuck together. Otherwise, we’d never have made it.

Honoring the second chapter in the Mighty Second District
on their 90th year of service

The Birth of "Mighty" Epsilon Chapter

Founded: April 18, 1919

In 1919, the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity bestowed upon New York City, her fifth chapter. On April 18, 1919, at the home of Brother A. Merral Willis, located at 24 W. 140th Street, nine Omega man gathered, and chartered the "Mighty" Epsilon chapter. Epsilon Chapter was organized for students attending Columbia University, New York University, City College of New York, and other institutions of higher learning in New York City. The charter members of Epsilon Chapter were Brothers A. Merral Willis, (charter member of Beta Chapter), Raymond George Robinson (7th Grand Basileus and charter member of Beta Chapter), Hastings E. Tompkins (Beta Chapter '16), John Gordon Dingle (Alpha Chapter '13), James Burnett Ford (Alpha '12), Osceola E. McKaine (Des Moines, Iowa War Chapter '16/Gamma Chapter '17), Henry M. Marlowe (charter member of Beta Chapter), W.P. Stanley (Beta Fall '14), and J. Herd Huddleson.

With the foundation in place, the brothers now had to select the men who would lead her in the right direction. Epsilon's first officers were Brothers A. Mrral Willis, Basileus, Osceola E. McKaine, Keeper of Records, J. Herd Huddleson, Keeper of Seals, and Hastings E. Tompkins, Chaplain. These were the first of many loyal sons of Omega who would lead Epsilon Chapter.
