Kappa Alpha Psi, a black social fraternity at Kansas University, has decided its members won't perform in KU's annual Rock Chalk Revue.
However, Drew Brown, Rock Chalk Revue director for the fraternity, said Wednesday the fraternity will still be involved in fund-raising efforts for the annual show, which is a benefit for the United Way.
Earlier, Kappa Alpha Psi had teamed with the Alpha Gamma Delta sorority and Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity to perform a skit for the show.
However, Brown said, the 13 members of Kappa Alpha Psi decided they didn't have the time to devote to the practices.
"I had misunderstood the amount of time that it would take for the practices," Brown said. "Most of us go to school, work and some of us have children. We are spread a little thin."
The local chapter is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year, which will also take up the members' time, he said.
Brown said the fraternity would continue in its efforts to raise funds for the United Way at KU concession stands. He said it also will continue doing other community service work.
