Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was founded on January 13, 1913
by twenty-two collegiate women at Howard University. These students wanted to use their collective
 strengths to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need.
The first public act performed by our Delta Founders involved their participation in the
 Women's Suffrage March in Washington D.C., March 1913.
Delta Sigma Theta was incorporated in 1930.
