Delta Sigma Theta

Sorority, Inc.


Arts and Letters


Since its founding in 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has been committed to Literature and the Creative and Performing Arts. One of our Founders, Osceola McCarthy Adams, a distinguished actress, was one of the first Black actresses on Broadway.  She was the Director of the Harlem School of the Arts and directed theatrical debuts of Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier.  From Dorothy Maynard to Leontyne Price, from Nikki Giovanni, Ruby Dee Davis to Judith Jamison and from Tina Allen to Janinah Burnett and so many others, Deltas have been and will continue to be leaders within the Arts.

The mission of the Arts & Letters Committee is to stimulate the interest in arts, music and other cultural enrichment activities for Sorors within the Charlotte Alumnae Chapter.  Our focus centers to promote, foster, cultivate, perpetuate and preserve the Arts & Letters of African Americans in Fine, Literary, Abstract, Visual and Performing Arts.
