Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., Celebrates 100 years of Sisterhood & Service
Thousands of women from all over the world came to Howard University to celebrate and rejoice 100 years of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc., women young and old who shared a common bond of sisterhood filled the historical campus surrounding the “Lady of Fortitude” statue. As some may know, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. has a rich history rooted in social, economic, political, and religious engagement starting from their participation in the Women’s Suffrage march to help women gain the right to vote to using their platforms for greater good. Many of these women some of national acclaim; Melissa Harris Perry, Shirley Chisholm, Senator Carol Moseley Braun, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Aretha Franklin are leaders in programs and foundations that help improve the lives of all Americans. A weekend FULL of events and ceremonies marked their centennial, Washington D.C was painted a bright crimson with so many making the pilgrimage to where the 22 collegiate women began this journey, tears of joy & triumph and for some a reunion that long overdue. Sisterhood and service is the foundation of this organization and continues to be their driving force.
We at the Bulldog Collegian would like to wish Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. a very happy 100th!
