Delta Sigma Theta Interviews

“On January 10, 1976 eighteen college-educated African American women, all Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc sisters, chartered the Springfield-Decatur Area Alumnae Chapter. The stories about the chartering of that chapter, as reflected in the oral history interviews of its charter members, illustrate these trailblazers’ fortitude and tenacity that provide the foundation for the chapter today.”
