Phi Phi Chapter


85 Years of rich history in Richmond, VA

The Phi Phi Chapter has a rich tradition of supporting, collaborating, and working with local and national organizations to uplift and promote mankind. Phi Phi Chapter was established in Richmond, Virginia on March 1, 1927 by five graduates of Virginia Union University under the administration of Grand Basileus Julius S. McClain. Those five men were Henry B. Hucles, A.B. Greer, Joseph T. Bright, Dr. Henry J. McGuinn, and Robery J. Kenny.

Esteemed Brothers

Our Chapter has and continues to produce leaders in our Fraternity, such as Rayford L. Harris Jr. who served as the Third District Representative 1999 – 2002.  Alvoston L. Taylor, Jr. who not only promotes social awareness, but has been effecting positive change in the Richmond community since the 1960′s.

Phi Phi Chapter is proud to have had brothers participate in almost every area in society, like former Virginia Governor, L. Douglas Wilder, Attorney Oliver Hill, State Senator Benjamin Lambert and former Third District KRS Rayford Harris, Sr.  We have had and still have Brothers serving on the school board, as physicians, lawyers, entrepreneurs, bankers financial planners, realtors, and in the school system as principals and educators to name a few.  Through this commitment to serve, Phi Phi Chapter looks to build upon its seasoned history and exude Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance, and Uplift in all things that we do today and well into the future.
