  • Regina Townsend

    Delta Sigma Theta Founder Ethel Carr Watson was from Parkersburg, West Virginia. During the significant March for Women's Suffrage, Ms. Watson confided that her family told her not to march for suffrage, but was forced to defy the order because she was selected to hold the banner since she was the tallest. She pursued her teaching career over a period of thirty years. She then retired and began a second career as a dramatic performer.
