Film Story:

Founded in 1911, the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity was the first Greek Letter organization for African American students.  The fraternity established a branch in Philadelphia in 1951 at a time of growing racial tension and widespread segregation.  In the years that followed, the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity house became more than a campus fixture; it served as an anchor and gathering place for its community in West Philadelphia and for civil rights leaders across the city.
