Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated was "TURNT UP!"



If you were anywhere near the Washington DC area around July 10th thru the 17th, then you know that the ladies of Delta Sigma Theta were "TURNT UP!"...

I have been hearing this new slang term, "TURNT UP" a lot lately, and I like it. From the way that I have heard it used, "TURNT UP" means your stove is on high and the water is boiling over; it is "TURNT UP." Or, when a kid has eaten a lot of candy; that kid may be running around acting crazy; that kid is "TURNT UP!" Or, you know that friend or cousin who comes into a room and everyone knows that person is in the room, because he/she is extremely loud; that friend or cousin is "TURNT UP!"

Well, for our National Convention which happened to be held during our centennial year of sisterhood and service, Delta Sigma Theta was "TURNT UP!"

Almost every plane that came into the area's airport was filled with Delta women literally. The Deltas had the airports "TURNT UP!"

I believe that this plane was coming from Jackson, Mississippi.

We "TURNT UP" DC by having a portion of a street named after us...


We "TURNT UP" the convention center with Red and White day after day....



We "TURNT UP" the sorority even more by inducting some phenomenal honorary members....


WE "TURNT UP" The White House by meeting with The President of The United States in the Oval Office.....


You had to see for yourself how we "TURNT UP" The National Mall....


We 'TURNT UP" the campus of Howard University, where we were founded, by having a stained glass window dedicated on the University's campus.....

Stained windowpane in the background!

WE "TURNT UP" The King Memorial; the ladies in Red and White were all over it....


OH yea, and we "TURNT UP" the streets of DC...Red and White was everywhere......


ALL of those events were "TURNT UP," but we also "TURNT UP" Sisterhood....










The entire time, I was "TURNT UP!"

And you know what?

I am sooooo happy to be alive for "Such a Time as This," BECAUSE.......

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated was "TURNT UP!"
