In 1973 a group of men who lived in the city of Joliet, Illinois would see each other on the streets and of course, they would greet each other as fraternity brothers. Some had just moved to the city, while others were already living there. Joliet, Illinois at that time was a predominately blue collar town: consisting of caterpillar, the Quarry and the prison industry.

 

The city had its share of racial issues dating back to the Joliet Riot after the death of Martin Luther King, Jr. Being an African-American professional man in the city at that time was not the norm. However, these brothers developed a very close bond based upon friendship, family and spirituality. In the latter part of 1973 their numbers had grown to 14 brothers coming from Alcorn, Philander Smith, North Carolina A&T,
Tennessee State, Florida A&M, Tougaloo, Texas Southern, Gambling, Morris Brown and
Wilberforce. These brothers truly believed and lived our creed of “Friendship is Essential
to the Soul”

On March 9, 1974, the chapter was officially chartered at a ceremony where Burnell Coulon (Omega Chapter), 10th District Representative and a future Grand Basileus and Marion Garnett, Grand Basileus of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. at the time presided.  The Nu Pi brothers elected their first chapter officers. Those brothers elected were:  John Greenwood, Basileus, Arnold Mitchell, Vice-Basileus, Willie L. Lewis, Jr., Keeper of Records and Seal and Tillman Rosemon as Keeper of Finance. They were joined by Sam Epps, Melvin Walker (Omega Chapter) Julian Browne (Omega Chapter), Floyd Eskridge (Omega Chapter) Cleo Knight (Omega Chapter), James Robertson, Harold Reeder, Cornell Williams , Leroy Adams, John Bell, and  Bill Lucky (Omega Chapter). Nu Pi Chapter was the first African-American fraternity chapter founded in the southwestern suburbs.

The chapter was off and running by initiating their first line in 1975 and by establishing Pi Eta Chapter at Lewis University in 1975 at the request of Carlton Russell, the lone undergraduate Omega on campus. In order to bring the African-American community together, the chapter initiated the 3rd Friday’s Gatherings at the Joliet Sheraton which became very popular in the 70’s and 80’s. The chapter membership strongly believed in community service and various members served on various boards in the city; NAACP, Friends of the Joliet Public Library, Forest Park Community Center, and the Rainbow Council of Boy Scouts.

In 1994 at the Conclave in Cleveland, Ohio, Brother Clevon Davis had his first conversation about reactivating Nu Pi Chapter with Ronald Hughes who was the 10th District Representative at the time. Two more meetings were held to lay the ground work for reactivation to take place.  In 1995, Nu Pi was reactivated. The first official meeting was held in the home of Brother Elvis Adams where Brother Clevon Davis was elected Basileus, Brother Robert
Ellis was elected Vice-Basileus, Brother Harold Dell (Omega Chapter) was elected Keeper of Records and Seal and Brother Elvis Adams was elected Keeper of Finance. They were joined by Brothers Donald Dew, Marvin Nolden, Kenneth Nolen, Lamark Carter and Rodney Harrington, and the 10th District Representative, Ronald Hughes. This indeed was
the catalyst that propelled Nu Pi into the next century.

 

This reactivation effort has increased the rolls of Omega by initiating over 180 new brothers into the fold. With their successful Founder’s Banquets, and their work in the community through the fraternity’s mandated programs, they have either participated in or sponsored:  Talent Hunts, Essay Contests, Achievement Week, Blood Drives, Health Fairs, Joliet Black Pride,  Clothing and Toy Drives, Food Give-A-Ways, Scholarships, and  mentoring programs. Thus, Nu Pi continues to maintain their commitment of uplift to the community. The Chapter hosted the District Meeting in 2009 and received the Chapter of the Year Award from the District in 2007 & 2009. We celebrate the charter members for their vision and we celebrate the brothers who reactivated the chapter along with all the brothers who have since joined this fraternity through the portals of Nu Pi Chapter. Long Live Nu Pi Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
