Delta Sigma Theta Sorority,Inc. is an organization of college educated women committed to constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the African American community. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was established in 1913 by 22 young women at Howard University, Washington, D.C., and incorporated in 1920. Often called DST or Delta, Delta Sigma Theta has focused the considerable talents of its membership on improving the communities in which its members live, as well as bringing attention to social, educational, political, and health issues affecting African peoples everywhere. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., the sisterhood has chartered over 1,000 chapters in North America, Europe, the Caribbean and Asia. Approximately 250,000 predominately African American women worldwide are proud to call themselves Deltas. Delta's chapter in the Cape Fear region is the Wilmington Alumnae Chapter. Chartered in 1940, the chapter serves Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender Counties. Chapter offices have been located at 401 North 7th Street, Wilmington since the chapter bought that building in 1960. Alumnae chapter members range in sorority experience from new initiates to Deltas with 50 to 60 years of devoted services to the sisterhood. All members hold at least a baccalaureate degree, with a good percentage holding advanced and professional degrees. And...100% of them are registered voters!
We're everywhere there is a positive movement like the local HBCU Battle of the Bands preshow with event organizer Frankie Pollock.
