Baltimore -- Baltimore, Md. recently played host to thousands of its favorite sons as Groove Phi Groove Social Fellowship, Inc. returned home to celebrate its 50th Anniversary. To mark this historic occasion, Groove donated $50,000 to Morgan State University where it all began in 1962, when 14 men founded the organization, solidifying their vision of addressing education, leadership and social and economic issues in the black community. This was the beginning of a thriving movement that continues today, and boasts hundreds of chapters and more than 40,000 members worldwide. The donation will be used for student scholarships and book fees.
Thousands of Grooves gathered for the celebration including 13 of the 14 original founders. This year's theme, "Celebrating The Past...While Charting the Future" was in recognition of the Fellowship's 50 years of service to the community. Charging its chapters with 'thinking globally and acting locally,' Groove will continue to implement local initiatives through its Groove Leadership Academy, Groove Phi Cares and the Groove Foundation.
