Greetings, from the men of historic Beta Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. Our chapter, chartered in Kansas City in January 1919, was the second Alumni Chapter established by Alpha Phi Alpha and is the Fraternity's oldest Alumni Chapter west of the Mississippi River. Welcome to Kansas City, and we invite you to join us for our Centennial Celebration in 1919!
Alpha Phi Alpha's "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People" national program was initiated during the 1930s, when many African-Americans were prevented from voting because of poll taxes, threats of reprisal, and lack of education about the voting process. Even now, in the 21st Century, voter education and registration remain a dominant focus of this vital activity. Learn more about the fraternity's efforts to protect and promote voting rights.
Beloved Beta Lambda Brother Edwin R. Byrd, a renowned and deeply respected Kansas City educator, community leader and one of the longest-serving members of Alpha Phi Alpha, has passed away after a brief illness. Brother Byrd had recently turned 96 years old. He was initiated into the fraternity in 1940 through Upsilon Chapter while he was a student at the college now known as Pittsburg (Kan.) State University. Omega Services for Brother Byrd will be 10:30 a.m. on Monday, March 14, at Swope Parkway United Christian Church, 6140 Swope Parkway, Kansas City, Mo., 64130.
"If you want a boy to someday BE a man, he needs to SEE a man." That old saying delivers a powerful message that rings true today. Alpha Phi Alpha's participation in mentoring programs -- including Scouting and Big Brothers, Big Sisters -- delivers much-needed guidance and inspiration to our youth. Learn more about Alpha Phi Alpha's initiatives in the area of mentoring.
