It is with great regret that we inform you that Brother Albert C. Spurlock (Beta Chapter 1933) of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. passed away on 2/4/15 at the age of 101-years old.
Brother Spurlock was born April 17th, 1913 in West Virginia but grew up in Peoria, Illinois where his father worked as a steam engineer. He attended University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana and was initiated into Kappa Alpha Psi’s Beta Chapter in 1933 during the Great Depression. After getting his masters he got married and served in WWII. He was an active member of Indianapolis (IN) Alumni Chapter and a truly a great man.
The following is an interview that Bro. Spurlock did in 2001 for the University of Illinois’ Oral History Project. In the interview, Bro. Spurlock opens up about what it was like to be a Kappa in the 1930s and how students at his school navigated the racism and segregation that was in place.
Please share this piece of history with as many people as you can and keep Bro. Spurlock’s family in your prayers.
