The Memphis Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. has been fostering the development of young African American women of culture and honor and facilitating their formal introduction into society for 68 years. After more than six decades, daughters, granddaughters, and even great-granddaughters of past Debs dawn their white gowns and celebrate their matriculation into society and womanhood at the "Kappa Debutante Presentation." The presentation is similar to graduation in that it is the last event for the "Debutante Experience." For parents, the purpose of a debutante presentation is to show society how prepared, beautiful, poised, and confident their daughter has become. It allows them an opportunity to showcase her efforts up to this point in life and encourage her to take her rightful place in the world.
