Kappa Alpha Psi
When I arrived at Wake Forest University in August 2000, the school had no chapter of my father’s fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. I had known that I wanted to pledge Kappa, like my dad, since I was fourteen. Fortunately, there was an active Kappa chapter at a neighboring historically-black college, Winston-Salem State University. I am a Fall 2003 initiate of the Delta Chi Chapter at WSSU and a Charter Member of the Omicron Sigma Chapter at Wake Forest, which was founded the following year. My line brothers and I—Fall ‘03: The DyNasty—will celebrate 19 years in the fraternity this year.
My father, Anderson William Perry, Jr., is a Spring 1969 initiate of the Alpha Xi Chapter at Florida A&M University. He and his line brothers—Spring ’69: The 23 Saints of Hades—will celebrate 53 years in the fraternity this year. Both of us are Kappa Life Members.
