I'm not greek so I could be wrong but I heard that Halle Berry is an honorary member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. I do know that Alicia Keys is now an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Correct me if I'm wrong about Halle.

CORRECTION: According to DST's history, all 22 of their founders are AKAs, but Alpha Kappa Alpha archives will show that only nine of them were actually members of AKA-hence their nine pearls.
Delta sigma theta history does not say all founders were AKAs, they go by nine as well some people get the information twisted, and to clear up the comment before Omegas did not influence the AKAs to break off and start DST, they broke off because they felt that AKA was more of a social organization as to the reason and purpose that they joined. If others are really interested in DSTs history, Read the following In Search Of Sisterhood, by Paula Hiddings

I have seen you mention before that some people say that some of AKA founders left AKA to start Delta Sigma Theta. I don't know who says this, but it is definitely false. Delta Sigma Theta was not founded by any of AKA's founders. However, all 22 of my founders were, according to notes and taped interviews left by my founders. Soror Bertha Pitts Campbell acknowledged that all 22 were initiates of AKA. In Search of Sisterhood (Soror Paula Giddings) and Shaped to Its Purpose: The First Fifty Years of Delta Sigma Theta (Soror Mary Elizabeth Vroman) both state that our founders were initially AKAs. I heard, with my own ears, Soror Bertha Pitts Campbell acknowledge that they were initially AKAs. I also heard her explain why. Please tell me the source that says that says that we had the same founders. That is simply not true. I think I saw you mention once that you heard it in a chant. A chant is hardly a reputable source. And you could have also heard it wrong, or the persons ( sorors) could have been saying it wrong. And yes, Soror Eliza Pearl Shippen was a graduate of the Howard 1912 class. However, the decision to reorganize was made in 1912. The actual reoganization took place in 1913, January 1, 1913, to be exact. That is why Soror Shippen is considered a founder. She also marched with the other founders in the Sufferage March and participated in various other activities as a Delta. And no, you dare not say Soror. :wink:
Reading is fundamental. Go back a few pages and see what I had to say about these things.
I had my mother read your post and she said maybe its the pink and green running through your blood but it something called reading in between the lines and thats not whats stated in the book...my mother crossed the sands in SPR 75

:lol: Maybe I'm misinterpreting your post but I never said Delta founders were AKA founders, Trauma had that all wrong. Delta founders were AKAs but they weren't our founders :wink: And that was Trauma, a Delta, that was referencing the book, not me
