Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Walk and Candlelight Vigil
The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Walk and Candlelight Vigil is a program that the Kappa Tau Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. hosts annually to commemorate the contributions of one our dear fallen Brothers. The program takes place during MLK Observance Week and begins with a solemn Memorial Walk from several locations on campus.
In 2007, Kansas State University made a commitment to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr by installing a commemorative bust and securing land to create a “Coretta Scott King Garden of Engagement”, becoming one of very few institutions of higher education in the United States to do so. We are honored to be a part of that initiative and give our sincere thanks to every administrator, student leader, artist, community activist, and volunteer who put their effort towards making this dream a reality at KSU. Below is a link to some photos from the MLK Memorial March and Bust Installation.
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.
