Although Bertha Pitts Campbell devoted her life to many causes that improved the lives of people and strengthened her community, none meant more to her than Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, which she and twenty-one other women founded in 1913 while attending Howard University.

Through memories of Bertha’s sorors and family, four sister-friends share the achievements of an extraordinary woman who always lived life to the fullest and exceeded her goals. As a visionary member of the sorority, Bertha marched in the 1913 Suffrage Parade for women’s voting rights, orchestrated the sorority’s international public service efforts, and helped transform the history of women and people of color. Bertha’s journey through life makes clear the fact that she was a brilliant thinker, passionate change agent, and empathetic leader who continuously strived for excellence.

This biography tells the compelling history of the ideal Delta Girl who continues to inspire her sorors to live, live, live!

This amazing book explains not only the life of Bertha Pitts Campbell, but mostly her personality. It is no wonder why everyone loved and respected her, she seemed like a real nice lady. It is clear that the authors of this book took their time and really did this from their heart and soul.   I felt like I knew Mrs. Pitts Campbell  personally through reading this book, her personality is very strong, even through the words of her sorors. Excellent read!
