Independence Day - 2017

On behalf of the Southwestern Province of Kappa Alpha Psi (KΑΨ) Fraternity, Incorporated, I sincerely extend optimistic wishes to the membership on this Independence Day. Today, we reflect upon the bravery and resolve of a small band of revolutionaries who truly defied a British empire to declare “that these united colonies are, and of right ought to be free and independent states.” As these United States of America continues to embark upon revolutionary change and thrive in the face of sexism, racism, parochialism,
chauvinism, nationalism and xenophobilism, so does Kappa Alpha Psi (KΑΨ) Fraternity, Incorporated as well.

As time marks our Nation’s birthday in Second Century Kappa, we as members of Kappa Alpha Psi (KΑΨ) Fraternity, Incorporated remain steadfast and continue to carry on the improbable experiment that began 241 years ago; not simply declaring our principles, but living them; not simply celebrating our Union, but always working to perfect it. Kappa Alpha Psi (KΑΨ) Fraternity, Incorporated has plenty of work to do in Second Century Kappa.

As your Province Polemarch, here’s wishing each of you the best for a happy and reflective Independence Day. May God bless Kappa Alpha Psi (KΑΨ) Fraternity, Incorporated and continue to protect all those who serve in the defense of our Nation and may God bless these United States of America. All Roads Lead to Orlando in 2017!

I remain,

Yours in the Bond
