Washington, DC (PRWEB) June 23, 2011
EMQ Networks, the online media network dedicated to the African American collegiate experience, is unveiling the BlackGreek Mobile App on July 1st and giving its audience a chance to join the excitement of the 17th Annual 2011 ESSENCE Music Festival presented by Coca Cola in New Orleans, the Ultimate Party Weekend.
The BlackGreek Mobile App was designed to put "The Yard" right at your fingertips and is the first app featuring news, step shows, stroll off videos, and alerts from: Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc., Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc., Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., and Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.
BlackGreek.TV was developed out of the question, "Are Black Greek Lettered Organizations still relevant today?" Lillian Jones, Content Director of EMQ Networks, suggests they are, “These organizations still hold fellowship, scholarship, and service as its main pillars and are constanly working in our communities. The problem is more people see the parties than the community outreach.” EMQ Networks' goal with developing BlackGreek.TV was to create a space to showcase and share a well rounded depiction of the Black Greek lifestyle and experience. Programming for the network will include spotlights on top under-graduate and graduate chapter members, special events, service projects, and more.
EMQ Networks welcomes everyone to the unveiling of the BlackGreek Mobile App on July 1st at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA. Activities will include games, give-a-ways, trivia, and the 2nd Annual BlackGreek Stroll Off Competition.
