If you’re in the nation’s capital, you’ve seen an abundance of red (crimson) and white (cream). Over the weekend, the women of Delta Sigma Theta (a not-for profit Greek-lettered sorority of college-educated women who perform public service and place emphasis on the African American community) took over DC for their Centennial convention.
The week-long celebration including them inducting a few A list celebs. Actress Angela Bassett and Susan L. Taylor (former Editor-In-Chief of Essence magazine) were inducted and are now proud members of the sorority, founded at Howard University. Other famous Deltas include: Nikki Giovanni, Soledad O’Brien, Betty Shabazz, Lena Horne, Shirley Chisolm and Cicely Tyson. Check out a few photos of DST’s newest members.
