“So proud of my son for winning Beau of the year & Best Essay! #kappaleague #BeautillionBall #Senior #classof2019 #Claflinbound#KappaAlphaPsi Fraternity, Inc. #Arlington #GrandPrairie Chapter Beautillion Ball.” 

The Metroplex Beautillion as it’s known was developed as a local response to Guide Right, a national service directive of Kappa Alpha Psi. Since its inception, this program has become a landmark experience for those who have participated and has since been adopted by a multitude of other Kappa alumni chapters across the country. The program provides black youth with mentoring, guidance, self-awareness, college preparation, leadership training and scholarships.

Congrats to all of the fine young men!

Meantime, over 20 years after her paralyzing car accident, Ms. Moore continues to inspire. she is an actress, model, singer, songwriter, substitute teacher, wife, mother and motivational speaker. Several of Kebra Moore’s songs and videos have been nominated for awards.

Her song, “He’ll Make a Way” was featured on President Barack Obama’s documentary soundtrack, “Becoming Barack: Evolution of a Leader.”

On Christmas Eve, 1999, Moore, her fiancé, Marquis Moore and her son, Marquis Jr. were traveling from New Orleans, Louisiana, to Camden, Arkansas, for the holidays.  As she recalls the accident.  “A car in front of us didn’t give a signal, but turned right in front of our car. My fiancé had one of two choices – hit the car that turned in front of us or go off the road. He felt the safest course of action was to leave the road.  We went up in the air, came down and hit a tree. The tree actually stopped the car from rolling over. I was conscious during the entire accident. Following behind us was a nurse going to work.

He fiancee confirmed that he baby was okay, but she quickly realized that she couldn’t move.

She was immediately taken to a hospital in Vicksburg, Mississippi, where doctors took x-rays and then sent me to St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson, Miss. The doctors informed Marquis that my 12th vertebra was crushed, and I had sustained an incomplete T12 fracture, with a good chance that she would never walk again.
