The nation’s captiol was full of Crimson and Cream over the weekend. It’s Delta Sigma Theta’s Centennial Convention. 100 years of African-American Women striving for excellence in EDUCATION, COMMUNITY, and SISTERHOOD.
Delta Sigma Theta is a not-for profit Greek-lettered sorority of college-educated women who perform public service and place emphasis on the African-American community. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was founded on January 13, 1913, by 22 collegiate women on the campus of Howard University. The founding members of Delta Sigma Theta wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. The organization was involved in the Women’s Suffrage Movement 100 years ago. The ladies of Delta Sigma Theta are still making a lasting impact on the world through public service and education.
Angela Evelyn Bassett is an American actress and now she can be called a proud member Delta Sigma Theta… The week-long celebration including them inducting a few A list celebs.
