    Delta Sigma Theta is a sorority I took keen interest in after doing some profound research. Not only is it a sorority but indeed a sisterhood. The values and driven purpose to which the sorority serves to the African American communities here at home and abroad speaks volumes. I first took an interest with pledging as a teen.
