We had the good fortune of connecting with Tamika (Eminent) Burns-Isadore, La’Wrenette (eLAHgance) Rogers-Mitchell, and Antrell (Essence) Phillips and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Alpha Psi Nu Fraternity, Inc. was founded November 1, 2022, in Houston, Texas. Frat Eminent and Frat eLAHgance aspired to be part of a collegiate sorority but didn’t want to conform to certain expectations. After healthy dialogue about their desires, they decided to research non-collegiate organizations. After being unlucky, Frat Eminent and Frat eLAHgance both decided to create their own fraternity that shared their common interest. Frat Eminent and Frat eLAHgance  then recruited Frat Essence to form what would become known as Alpha Psi Nu Fraternity, Inc.
