Arts & Letters

In the mid-seventies, Delta Sigma Theta established the Arts & Letters Commission, co-chaired by notable Deltas Leontyne Price and Lena Horne. Their mission was to support black women in the arts. In keeping with the legacy of our sorority, the Houston Alumnae Chapter’s Arts and Letters Committee is committed to implementation of programs that represent creative expressions in performing, visual and literary arts. The performing arts is a rich part of our African American history and we strive to keep that history alive. We maintain a commitment to the National Arts and Letters Commission Initiatives and Programs by hosting Red Carpet events,  Delta Authors on Tour events and Delta Reads events.

The Houston Alumnae Chapter’s Arts and Letters Program is directly aligned with the mission of the Sorority’s Arts and Letters Commission. Despite the challenges of the COVID 19 pandemic, we utilize virtual platforms that actively support, nurture and uplift positive programming that create engaging conversations with impactful content.
