The definition of Phi Nu Pi is “friends never part” and is the motto of a fraternity called Kappa Alpha Nu or Kappa Alpha Psi. This fraternity was once known as Alpha Kappa Nu in 1903 but has since changed its name. The majority of its members is African American and was founded at Indiana University Bloomington. It should be noted this fraternity has never limited its membership based on skin color, religious beliefs, or national origin. They are one hundred and fifty thousand members big and seven hundred undergraduate and alumni chapters across the country. Also they have international chapters across the world.
The group was started because of the few African-American students at the University due to the Jim Crow Laws at that time. Also because they were discouraged or banned from going to student extracurricular activities with white students so they rarely saw each other. This fraternity only grew stronger with the racism they encountered in the beginning of the fraternity’s history.
