Colin Kaepernick & Other Celebrities You Didn’t Know Were Kappas
Happy Founders Day to the brothers of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Incorporated! The fraternity was founded as Kappa Alpha Nu on the night of January 5, 1911 by ten African-American college students. The decision upon the name Kappa Alpha Nu may have been to honor the Alpha Kappa Nu club which began in 1903 on the Indiana University campus. The founders of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. are: Elder Watson Diggs, most affectionately known as ‘The Dreamer’, Dr. Ezra D. Alexander, Dr. Byron Kenneth Armstrong, Atty. Henry Tourner Asher, Dr. Marcus Peter Blakemore, Paul Waymond Caine, George Wesley Edmonds, Dr. Guy Levis Grant, Edward Giles Irvin, and Sgt. John Milton Lee.
