Black History Month: Black Women and Suffrage


In 2006, Derek Fordjour and Jamar White created the Black Sorority Project: The Exodus, a full-length documentary feature chronicling the lives of 22 Howard University Women who marched in the Women’s Suffrage March of 1913 and changed the course of history forever. These were the women of Delta Sigma Theta.
