Rashid Darden Elected to Lead Arts Fraternity

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Muhammad Salaam
Interim National Executive Director
executivedirector@gammaxiphi.com

Philadelphia, PA, June 14, 2015— Gamma Xi Phi, the professional fraternity for artists, elected novelist Rashid Darden as National President at the fraternity’s biennial convention on June 13, 2015, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Several other members were also elected or reelected at that time.

Rashid Darden joined Gamma Xi Phi in 2011 as a charter member of the fraternity’s second chapter, Beta Chapter, which serves artists in Washington, District of Columbia. He was the organization’s National Executive Director from 2011 to 2015. He also served as the Chairman of the National Membership Committee.

An author with four critically acclaimed novels and a volume of poetry, Darden is also a photographer and nonprofit professional. He has served in both development and programming and is currently an outreach manager for the DC Recovery Community Alliance.

“Gamma Xi Phi is a gift for a generation that we don’t yet know,” Mr. Darden said to the members assembled. “We have to be confident that the work we do looks toward the future.” The National President’s remarks focused on the idea of every member’s talents being used toward a greater future for the organization which serves communities through the arts.

A reception introducing Mr. Darden is planned for Saturday, August 15, 2015. The theme will be “A Celebration of Service and Fraternalism.”

In addition to the election of the National President, the following members were also elected to leadership roles:

• National Vice-President: Sharnell Bryan of Washington, DC
• National Secretary: Nicole Stewart of Newark, New Jersey
• National Treasurer: Brittany Clark of Washington, DC
• National Trustee-at-large: Micaela Moore of Lindenwold, New Jersey
• National Trustee-at-large: Ernest Perry of Durham, North Carolina
• National Nominating Committee Chairman: Shawn Spencer of Washington, DC

Mr. Darden quickly unveiled a presidential theme of “Investing in Artists for the Community and the World” with a roll-out date of July 1, 2015 for an updated national program.

Gamma Xi Phi was founded on October 7, 2010, by Ramapo College men and women who were interested in creating strong bonds between students pursuing artistic careers. The purpose of the fraternity is to unite collegiate and professional artists in the spirit of fellowship and perpetual artistic growth. Gamma Xi Phi promotes philanthropy and service to the arts, brotherhood among all artists, and leadership development in artistic professions through collegiate and community outreach to people of color across the world.
