The Hopkinsville / Ft Campbell Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. mourns the passing of:
The Honorable John J. Conyers, Jr.
At 90 years-old, the former U.S. Congressman has transitioned into "Chapter Invisible".
With 53 years of public service as a member of The U.S. House of Representatives, Democratic Congressman John J. Conyers, Jr. was the longest tenured African-American elected official in Congress and the sixth longest constituent ever to serve. Bro. Conyers was also a member of
Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Initiated into the fraternity on July 27, 1951, at The University of Washington (Gamma Eta Chapter), Bro. Conyers, a Veteran of the Korean War, was elected to public office in 1965 and worked tirelessly until 2017.
The 26-year-term U.S. Representative was a longtime champion for civil-rights, social justice and equality. While in office, Bro. Conyers chaired both The House Judiciary and The House Oversight Committees. And, it was Bro. John J. Conyers, Jr. who introduced bills--to recognize Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s Birthday as a National Holiday, as well as to supply blacks with compensatory reparations for slavery.
Bro. Conyers was also a founding member of The Congressional Black Caucus which was formed in 1971.
We celebrate the life and the legacy of our brother, The Honorable John J. Conyers, Jr. for his endless contributions to public service.
He will be truly missed.

The Hopkinsville / Ft Campbell Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. mourns the passing of our brother and Hollywood Filmmaker John Singleton.
Bro. John Singleton carved out his mark in the entertainment world and made history as a respectable African-American filmmaker. He set the bar high and created ground-breaking and meaningful content with movie classics like: "Boyz n the Hood", "Poetic Justice" and "Baby Boy".
Solid material we all enjoyed.
We celebrate the life and legacy of our brother, Movie Director John Singleton, who has now (unfortunately) transitioned to his final act within "Chapter Invisible".
One word to simply describe this meritorious Nupe:
