The Kappa Koffeehouse Forum Series originated on the campus of Ohio University,

Athens, Ohio in 1993 by the Epsilon Lambda Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity,


In 2018, Brother Dr. Robert Hughes, a 1994 Epsilon Lambda initiate joined the Conyers-

Covington Alumni Chapter and was asked to serve as the Political & Civic Action

Committee Chair. In his role as Chair, Brother Hughes presented Kappa Koffeehouse to

CCAC as a community engagement opportunity. CCAC hosted its inaugural Kappa

Koffeehouse on September 27, 2018 at Maddlulu Cafe in Porterdale, GA.

In 2021, Brother Elder J.B. Brockman, a spring 1980 initiate from Gamma Mu Chapter

Benedict College, Columbia, SC joined the Conyers- Covington Alumni Chapter and

was presented an opportunity to Chair this committee. He immediately accepted the

challenge and invited other brothers to help him in his pursuit of advancing this

committee to higher heights. Under Brother Brockman’s leadership, the committee has

successfully organized various other Kappa Koffeehouse Town Hall meetings

throughout Rockdale and Newton counties and developed a new Kappa Koffeehouse

logo. The CCAC brand has experienced increased community exposure through

various media outlets. Those media outlets include digital online distribution along with

print local newspaper organizations, social media which includes Instagram &

Facebook, networking groups, flyer distribution out in the community and by word of

mouth. One of our articles was featured on the front page of the local newspaper. A

broadened awareness of this committee’s visibility is more prevalent and overall citizen

participation in the Town Hall meetings has increased as well.

community based outreach programs such as local churches, other 501C

together and can have a greater impact when unified with others who share our
