HONORING SCHOLASTIC AND COMMUNITY ACHIEVMENT
National Achievement Week is a mandated program of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. Inc., that was originally designed to promote the study of African American life and history. Its beginnings date back to the 1920s, when Brother Carter G. Woodson, The Father of Black History month, inspired the overall idea. In 1927, at his urging, the Fraternity made National Negro Achievement Week an annual observance.
