Pi Nappa Kappa, Natural Hair Sorority

Pi Nappa Kappa, Natural Hair Sorority, will have it's first meet-up December 10-11th at the Reliant Center in Houston, Texas. Never heard of this sorority? Keep reading. 

When many people think of sororities they think of a sisterhood where like-minded women can bond. These women join the sororities because while they are powerful alone, they feel they'd be more appreciated in a group. Once joining these sororities these women are supposed to represent beauty, maturity, friendliness, and anything else that represents a perfect girl in a perfect world. The biggest sororities promoting great messages that come to my mind are the Deltas, AKA's, and the Zeta's. Well those are the names that I heard the most while in college. However, there's a new sorority on the block with a brand new message. It's called Pi Nappa Kappa, Natural Hair Sorority.

Pi Nappa Kappa is a sorority that was founded within that last year. It's mission statement is "to educate, inspire, and uplift natural hair women, men, boys, and girls throughout the world. To make the word nappy into a happy celebrated term."

It was founded by Leola Anifowoshe, self proclaimed natural hair authority. Her goal for the sorority is to have a place where people with natural hair can tell their stories, interact, and create a bond. While the sorority is still fairly new it is growing in popularity. According to the Huffington Post Pi Nappa Kappa. has over 1600 fans on Facebook and they even have a pledge. Read the pledge below. 

As a member of the Pi Nappa Kappa Natural Hair Sorority, I pledge that:
1. I am a smart, special, valuable person!
2. I respect myself and I respect others. 
3. My words and actions are kind and honest. 
4. I will respect the dignity and essential worth of all individuals. 
5.I will promote the diversity of opinions, ideas, hairstyles and backgrounds which is the lifeblood of the sorority. 
6. I will promote a culture of respect throughout the natural hair community. 
7. I will not tolerate bigotry, discrimination, violence, or intimidation of any kind. 
8. I will practice personal integrity and expect it from others. 
9. I will always be proud of my natural born hair.
10. I accept only my best in all I do.
I am PROUD to be ME!
So what do you think? Do you believe in the natural hair sister, brother, everything-hood?
