The image of frat houses, sorority parties and step shows from Spike Lee's movie "School Daze" only tells a small part of what African American sororities do in communities of color across the country. Unlike White fraternal organizations who concentrate most of their activities during college years, Black fraternal organizations are active members of the community and are civically involved throughout adulthood.
Today we'll talk with two leaders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and learn more about Delta Day At The State House, an annual legislative conference replicated in states across the US. Past Chapter Presidents Natalie Carithers-Utley and Gloria Coney highlight this month's Delta Day at the Massachusetts State House, hosted by State Representative Gloria Fox. Issues including Stand Your Ground, Three Strikes , and Women's Health Care were part of a day long dialogue with sorority members, legislators, and the general public. Delta Day in Rhode Island also convenes their session this month.
It's a look at social action at the highest level. Come explore the inner activities of Black women on the move.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide assistance and support through established programs in local communities throughout the world. A sisterhood of more than 200,000 predominately Black college educated women, the Sorority currently has over 900 chapters located in the United States, England, Japan (Tokyo and Okinawa), Germany, the Virgin Islands, Bermuda, the Bahamas and the Republic of Korea. It was founded in 1913 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC.
