A pair of seemingly-unrecorded programs for the annual conferences of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity from 1948 and 1951. Each program contains the schedule of business and social events for the conference, lists of officers, as well as greetings, well wishes, advertisements, and more from the larger Phoenix community. Some of the advertisers include African-American-owned businesses such as Ragsdale Mortuary, Bohannon Cactus Drug ("Only Negro Pharmacy in Arizona"), and the Arizona Sun newspaper, "Published in the interest of the Social, Political and Economic Welfare of 75,000 Negroes of Arizona." The programs are also illustrated with numerous portrait photographs of the officers and attendees of the conference, and notable members of the local African American community.
