Haute or Not? Pi Nappa Kappa

In cased you missed it, Leola Anifowoshe has founded Pi Nappa Kappa, a sorority for women with natural hair.  The group is tied to Anifowoshe’s Natural Healthy Hair Society and not any college or university.  Membership simply requires that one sign a pledge which supports diversity and promotes  a “culture of respect.”  The controversial group, which Anifowoshe claims is all about “sisterhood,” has outraged some African-American members of traditional Greek organizations.   Our take is that PNK’s nomenclature is simply a marketing gimmick designed to grab attention among the many individuals looking to capitalize on the natural hair phenomenon.  While we agree with their mission, we’ll pass on pledging.
