Founded in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was created with the expressed goals of scholarship, service, and sisterhood. Even though they faced resistance, their first public act was to participate in the suffrage parade. In doing so, they cemented their position as a political force. The Sorority’s journey is told through members Paula Giddings and Alicka Ampry-Samuel.
