Many are discovering the Beyond This Place film project for the first time and are asking “How can I (or my chapter) help? I’ve put together a quick list of helpful actions you can take to support the Beyond This Place movement.

Alpha Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Oh how I LOVE you. I spent the evening with some of the members of Deltas first chapter as they celebrated their 98th year since being founded on January 13, 1913. The story of Delta is often misunderstood.

That’s right, it’s my return to the ‘HILL’. Howard University has an energy that I haven’t experienced before. My last visit, I was honored and a little dazed to be in the same space where so much history has taken place. Howard University (HU) is known as the “Cradle of Black Greek Civilization”.
