"they are two of the black historical fraternity and sorority that were founded in January 1911." That is an incorrect answer! Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority was founded January 15, 1908 and Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity was founded January 5, 1911. Both Greek Lettered Organizations are primarily, though not exclusively, African American in their demographic profile. The thing that relates the two organizations is the fact that Lucy Diggs Slowe, one of the sixteen original founders of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, and Elder Watson Diggs, the principal founder of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity were FIRST COUSINS and both were the FIRST President (Basileus/Polemarch) of their respective organizations' Alpha Chapter. Additionally, both were Educators and Grade School Principals. Other than these few factoids is the common knowledge that Pretty Girls wear 20 Pearls (members of AKA) and Pretty Boys (members of K-A-Psi) LOVE Pretty Girls! (LOL!)

Why did kappa alpha psi and phi beta sigma not join together?

There was never a connection. And there is no such letter from Diggs to Phi beta sigma asking them to join Kappa Alpha Psi. No sigma has seen such a letter nor members of Kappa Alpha Psi. There were two letters written one from Diggs to college men that were not organized explaining the orgins of Kappa, and another from a fraternity to Kappa asking to join, but nothing came of it. Yet, testimony to such a letter has persisted through the years and it appears evident through the annals of history that some form of communication did materialize between the fraternities of Kappa Alpha Psi and the Phi Beta Sigma. According to page 97 of a book entitied Black Greek-letter Organization in the Twenty-first Century the following historical account is noted: "It was at this time that the fraternity [Phi Beta Sigma] had another unique opportunity to expand. In a letter dated December 11, 1915, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity founder and Grand Polemarch Elder W. Diggs offered to merge Kappa Alpha Psi with Phi Beta Sigma. At the time, Kappa was establishing itself in the Midwest, while Sigma was expanding in the East and South. The fraternity's general board considered the proposal, but in a reply dated December 18, 1915, [Abram Langston] Taylor turned down the offer."
