Are you sure? cuz I was sure that they weren't...
:arrow: All 22 founding members of Delta Sigma Theta were fully initiated members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. It has been said that their influence to 'change' came from the men of Omega Psi Phi, I am still researching this for clarity((only because I LOVE history 8) )) :arrow: DST's first project was participation in the Women's Suffragette March of 1913 :arrow: Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha openly defied the Howard University administration and also participated in this march, for those who wanna know where we were when it happened, we were definitely there :wink: :arrow: There is a huge misconception that the 22 founding members of DST were also the founders of AKA. Our founders had long moved on to AKA graduate chapters before DST was ever even founded. :arrow: Ethel Hedgemen, the driving force behind the founding of AKA, married her childhood sweetheart George Lyle, a charter member of Beta Chapter(Howard U) Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.<---which was also the first frat chartered on HU's campus :arrow: Frogs are in no way associated with AKA. We have no official symbol besides the ivy leaf---no animals. :arrow: Delta Sigma Theta is the largest BGLO with over 200,000 members Be back with more 8)

Three of the founders of Delta Sigma Theta dated and married brothers of the Beta chapter at Howard University. Alphas and Deltas have kept close connections throughout history as at least five of our general presidents and one founder have made Delta women their wives. Dr. Henry Minton, co-founder of Sigma Pi Phi in 1904 later joined Alpha Phi Alpha. Hubert Horatio Humphey, former Vice-President of the United States and the namesake of the Minnesota Metrodrome, is an honorary member of Alpha Phi Alpha. We no longer award honorary membership.

:lol: Aren't you one of them? Someone once told me that majority of AKAs date/marry Kappas/Omegas. I think these are merely coincedences rather than facts :wink:

Believe it or not, I've never seriously dated a Delta. My serious relationships have been with a non-greek and AKAs.

^ My bad. I coulda sworn you said you were married to a Delta. Most of the DSTs I know (including my best friend) are with Alpha men so maybe it's more "coincedence" than I thought...
