Myra Davis Hemmings (1895-1968)

Hemmings was a teacher and actress, but she’s perhaps best-known for founding the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, now the largest black Greek organization in the U.S. Hemmings founded the group in 1912 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. After returning to San Antonio, she acted in local theater productions and three movies.
