Kappa Alpha Psi Leads March for Black Lives

Members of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. organized a march Sunday, July 19 in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. About 60 members of the fraternity participated in a rally that began in front of the historic Kappa fraternity house in Northwest before dozens marched to Black Lives Matter plaza. Other members of the nine Black fraternities and sororities joined the march who are part of the National Pan-Hellenic Council, also called the “Divine Nine.” Even in the blazing heat, attendees heard remarks from the Rev. Howard-John Wesley, a member of Kappa Alpha Psi and pastor of Alfred Street Baptist Church of Alexandria, Virginia. Councilmember Robert White, Jr. (D-At Large) also offered a few words. “We wanted to state that Black lives matter and that we needed to stand up and send that message,” said Presley R. Reed, a member of Kappa Alpha Psi’s D.C. alumni chapter and an attorney who practices energy law. “Protests are obviously important, but policy is also important for voter registration drives, mentoring young people and Black economic power to support Black businesses. This is all important for our community.”
