Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated (ΙΦΘ) is a historically African-American, intercollegiate Greek letter fraternity.
It was founded on September 19, 1963, at Morgan State University (then Morgan State College) in Baltimore, Maryland. The fraternity was founded by 12 men (giving the organization the distinction of having more founders than any other NPHC fraternity) — Albert Hicks, Lonnie Spruill Jr., Charles Briscoe, Frank Coakley, John Slade, Barron Willis, Webster Lewis, Charles Brown, Louis Hudnell, Charles Gregory, Elias Dorsey Jr. and Michael Williams — during the Civil Rights Movement.
