Brick City welcomes new Gamma

Brick City welcomes new Gamma

NEWARK, NJ- The Gamma Chapter of Gamma Xi Phi, a professional fraternity for artists serving Newark, New Jersey, initiated one new member on Saturday, June 29, 2024. This new member adds to the creativity and bandwidth of the chapter’s membership and places it on a continued path of celebrating “Gammas Out Loud!”

The new initiates is: Kevin Slaughter

Kevin Slaughter is known to the local artistic community as Don Krypton.

Don is a writer, author, DJ, professional Host, and Stage Assistant for NJPAC. A native of Elizabeth, NJ, with strong Newark roots he has a background in IT management.  He has always considered himself a wordsmith, writing short stories and raps in his spare time, but his true plunge into the Spoken Word/Poetry scene was inspired by a challenge given to him at the infamous CryOut Cave by the Evoluculture team, where he now serves as General Manager. Since then he has been an active part of the NJ poetry community and working diligently on his own. Don Krypton fancies himself a jack of all trades, dabbling in content creation, music/video editing, investments, philanthropy, activism, and support of the advancement and proper education of black people.

Gamma Xi Phi is a predominantly African American organization of men and women in the arts, including literature, visual art, music, theater, and dance. GXP was established at Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey, on October 7, 2010, on the principles of Philanthropy, Sodality, and Elevation.

Gamma Xi Phi honors artists’ achievements through fellowship, philanthropy, social justice, and service.
