The names above are affectionately referred to as Kappa Tau’s “5 Great Men”. They are the individuals responsible for bringing the Alpha legacy to Kansas State University and the city of Manhattan, Kansas. Pictured to the left are three of the 5 founders of this chapter. In order from left to right, they are: Greg Baker, Robert Harper, and Lonnie Barnes. The leadership, vision, and tenacity that it took to charter our beloved chapter will never be forgotten. Many good brothers have trod in the footsteps that they have set, and God willing, many more will follow.
Since its founding on December 4, 1906, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has supplied voice and vision to the struggle of African-Americans and people of color around the world.
Alpha Phi Alpha, the first intercollegiate Greek-letter fraternity established for African-Americans, was founded at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York by seven college men who recognized the need for a strong bond of Brotherhood among African descendants in this country.
