List of Kappa Alpha Psi members

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The list of Kappa Alpha Psi (ΚΑΨ) brothers (commonly referred to as Kappas or Nupes) includes initiated members.[1] The list below includes members recognized as leaders in their respective fields.

As of its centennial in 2011, the fraternity was composed of 150,000 college-trained men, with undergraduate chapters located on more than 360 college and university campuses and alumni chapters in more than 340 cities in the United States and five foreign countries.[2] The fraternity's Constitution has never contained any clause which either excluded or suggested the exclusion of a man from membership merely because of his color, creed, or national origin,[1] though membership has traditionally been dominated by those of African heritage.

Kappa Alpha Psi was founded on January 5, 1911, at Indiana University Bloomington in Bloomington, Indiana. The campus of Indiana University at that time did not encourage the assimilation of Blacks. Kappa Alpha Psi is the second oldest existing collegiate historically Black Greek letter organization and the first intercollegiate fraternity incorporated as a national body.[1]
