The Northern Province was represented at the grand opening observances of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture on Saturday September 24, 2016. Province Board Member Brother Gregory Thomas (Theta Iota 1987) of the Corning-Elmira Alumni Chapter attended the historic event. This grand opening day is a date that will be etched in the history of the United States of America. The event featured speeches from the 43rd President of the United States of America George W. Bush and the sitting 44th President of the United States of America Barack H. Obama.
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was recognized in the Major Contributor Leadership category in donating $500,000 - $999,999 to the museum. This is something we all can be proud of as chapters in the Northern Province and around the country have stepped up to ensure Kappa was a part of making this museum a reality.
