(swipe) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's nothing like attending a HBCU to learn more about your culture. It wasn’t until the 1830’s that African Americans were even able to receive higher education. That was just the beginning. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At an HBCU there are many opportunities for students to learn the true meaning of brotherhood and sisterhood. From the marching bands and the dancers, and of course to the nine historically Black Greek Letter Organizations(BGLOs) also referred to as the “divine nine.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To continue to show our love and appreciation for HBCUs, we would like to highlight the “divine nine” at different HBCUs to showcase community involvement as well as the creative steps and strolls. If you would like to show what your organization is doing at your HBCU, please DM @peachkyss or email at peachkyss@balleralert.com ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. was founded as Kappa Alpha Nu on January 5, 1911 by Founders Elder Watson Diggs; John Milton Lee; Byron Kenneth Armstrong; Guy Levis Grant; Ezra Dee Alexander; Henry Tourner Asher; Marcus Peter Blakemore; Paul Waymond Caine; Edward Giles Irvin and George Wesley Edmonds. The early vision of the Kappas was to serve as a social group dedicated to Black students on Indiana’s campus and to promote personal excellence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kappas have become known for their elaborate cane-assisted “stepping” routines and their “shimmy,” but the group prides itself for its service work beyond step show performances. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy Founder’s Day frats, and of course our faves ColinKaepernick, CedrictheEntertainer.

The organization won $500,000 from the challenge and has since gained more than 1,700 new Bay Area students through their mentorship, boot camp program and workshops. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “This work builds on over $35 million in Google.org grants focused on providing opportunities for underrepresented students to become pioneers of technology, and we’re excited to see how The Hidden Genius Project uses this new grant,” Steele wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Google is one of the several tech companies that struggle with diversity amongst their employees. Its last diversity report from June showed that there is only 1 percent of black tech workers with the company, and only 2 percent overall in the U.S. workforce.
