Alpha Phi Alpha - Beta Lambda Chapter Celebrates 100 Years and Hosts
21st Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Breakfast
7:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 21, 2019. Free and Open to the Public. 
 
Dr. Susan B. Wilson, vice chancellor of the Division of Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, will be the featured speaker at Alpha Phi Alpha's 21st annual Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday Breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on Jan. 21. The free event, at 2915 Swope Parkway, is presented by the fraternity's Beta Lambda Chapter, which this month is celebrating its 100th year in Kansas City. 
 
The event is open to the public and includes a continental breakfast and musical tributes. The theme for the breakfast is "Still I Rise: Women in the Civil Rights Movement." The title is a reference to Maya Angelou's poem about overcoming injustice, as well as an acknowledgement of the important roles women have played in the struggle for human rights.
 
Wilson is a licensed clinical psychologist and is the former associate dean for Diversity and Community Partnership at the UMKC School of Medicine.
