Kappa Alpha Psi

Επίτευγμα σε κάθε τομέα της ανθρώπινης προσπάθειας

Born from the ashes of racism, Kappa Alpha Nu underwent a poignant evolution, entangled with the venomous tendrils of bigotry. In the crucible of time, a haunting incident unfolded. Amidst the thunderous beats of Frank Summers hurdling through life’s challenges on the track, the words of a White student struck like a dagger, staining the fraternity’s name with malicious intent: “He is a member of Kappa Alpha Nig.”

The fraternity, a sanctuary of brotherhood and pride, found itself standing at the crossroads of identity and respect. The resonance of its name and the image it projected hung in the balance, a fragile tapestry threatened by the callous words of ignorance. For the Founders, guardians of a legacy forged in adversity, this was an affront that could not be endured.

With a brotherhood spanning time and space, Kappa Alpha Psi® transcends boundaries. Over 250,000 members, a formidable force, unite under its banner, weaving a tapestry of kinship across 700 undergraduate and alumni chapters that echo in nearly every corner of the United States. The fraternity’s influence extends far beyond, reaching international shores with thirteen chapters in lands as diverse as Nigeria, South Africa, Bermuda, Bahamas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Panama, United Kingdom, Germany, South Korea, Dominican Republic, Abu Dhabi, Canada, and Japan.

In the mosaic of NPHC-affiliated organizations, Kappa Alpha Psi® stands singular, adorned with not one but two names: Kappa Alpha Psi (ΚΑΨ) and Phi Nu Pi (ΦΝΠ). This duality births the affectionate moniker for its members, the esteemed “Nupes.”

Yet, it’s not just in nomenclature that Kappa Alpha Psi® distinguishes itself. It proudly heralds a legacy carved by individuals who embody the very essence of “Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor.” Each member is a testament to resilience, ambition, and the unyielding pursuit of excellence, making Kappa Alpha Psi® not just a fraternity but a living legacy that resonates through the corridors of time.
