Kappa Phi Lambda Chapter History

Kappa Phi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. was chartered in Columbia, Maryland on March 1, 1975.  This Alumni Chapter was an extension and reaffirmation of those early Alpha concepts that the common bond of Brotherhood extends beyond college days and the commitment to serve is a lifetime obligation.


In November 1974, Brothers gathered to form a search committee to pull together Alpha Men in Howard County; identifying many Brothers in Columbia and in the surrounding areas.  This effort culminated with the Chartering Ceremony on March 1, 1975, when thirty-four Alpha Men and their guests attended Kappa Phi Lambda Charter Ceremony. Bro. Belford Lawson, Past General President, addressed the audience, installed the Officers and presented the charter of Kappa Phi Lambda.


Since that evening in March 1975, the Chapter has grown and developed as a Brotherhood.  In the true spirit of Alpha Phi Alpha, the Brotherhood continues to reach out creatively to serve the community. Kappa Phi Lambda Chapter dedicates itself to the spirit and precepts established by our Founders.
