Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated is 101 years strong. Founded on the campus of Howard University, the historically Black sorority boasts a membership that includes plenty of notable actresses, athletes, politicians and all-around history makers.
Dedicated to public service, DST was founded on January 13, 1913. Interestingly, the 22 founders were originally members of the Alpha Kappa Alpha chapter at Howard. However, feeling disenchanted with AKA’s direction, the members decided to form a new sorority that they felt was more reflective of their goals of social activism and other civic-minded duties.
With plenty to choose from a membership that spans the globe, here are 13 of the most notable members of DST. Some of these ladies may even surprise you.
