This year Queens Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated (DST) is celebrating 70 years of impacting the community through committed and dedicated service. The illustrious history of Queens Alumnae chartered on June 4, 1951 began with the vision of 11 distinguished women including Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Founder Ethel Cuff Black.
This celebration will be a year-long collaboration of activities recognizing Queens Alumnae’s influence on the community. Seventy glorious years later a virtual 70s themed extravaganza is planned for June 4 to mark this momentous occasion as we Remember the Past, Reflect on the Present and Focus on the Future.
"On Their Shoulders"
The 70th Anniversary Celebration began with the unveiling of “On Their Shoulders” a commemorative limited-edition giclée canvas print by world renowned artist Leroy Campbell. This beautiful piece highlights African American women who not only bask in the art of literacy, but captures the wisdom of learning about women whose shoulders we humbly stand upon fused throughout this brilliant work. Mr Campbell states Deltas are “women whose commitment to the salvation of African American communities and its people is uncompromising.”
