Throughout the history of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, the Miss Black and Gold Pageant has become very near and dear to our hearts. The pageant is an outgrowth of the long tradition of our Fraternity’s designation of outstanding young ladies to serve as role models in the community. The Kappa Tau Chapter recognizes the valuable contributions rendered to it by the many supporters of Alpha Phi Alpha, and this endeavor serves as just one mechanism to applaud such support.
The first Miss Black and Gold Pageant was sponsored by the National Alpha Phi Alpha Convention in New York City in 1976, with our first Queen, Miss Denise Smith being crowned at that event. The pageant became a national program of Alpha and a staple at our conferences in 1982.
The Brothers of the Kappa Tau Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc are proud to present a small glimpse of our annual Miss Black and Gold Pageant. The Miss Black and Gold Pageant is our way of showcasing the intelligence, talent, excellence, and unparalleled beauty of Black Women on the campus of Kansas State University. We give our sincerest and most heartfelt thanks to each of the young ladies who have participated. Each of you are truly a queen. We thank you for representing yourselves, your families, your people, and last but not least the Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc in a very ladylike and respectable manner.
The Extraordinary Gentlemen of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Kappa Tau Chapter have found our stars and now we are ready to let them glow at their full potential to see who will be the brightest of them all. So prepare for beauty, intelligence, and poise.

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.
