Another Black Greek organization reaches 100 years

So 2011 is the Kappas centennial year. Alphi Phi Alpha & Alpha Kappa Alpha have already celebrated their centennial year in 2006 and 2008 respectively. A-Phi-A was founded at Cornell University and AKA was founded at Howard University.

On this day in 1911 (according to Wikipedia), KAΨ was founded at Indiana University, Bloomington. You can see more about prominent members of this fraternity here, but off the top of my head I knew that famed attorney Johnnie Cochrane was a member of this fraternity.

You can check out this video that I found over at Electronic Village who also gets a hat-tip for noting this anniversary.

EDIT: Forgot to mention another fraternity, Omega Psi Phi, will also celebrate 100 years in 2011 as well.
