About Jabberwock

Jabberwock is a cultural and fund raising activity that includes the local community. This project began as a unique means of raising scholarship funds by a Boston, MA chapter in 1925. Conceived by Marion Hope Conover, members of the Iota Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority presented a variety of performers who competed for prize monies. From this successful venture, Delta Jabberwock was born and would soon become part of the Delta tradition.

This annual production idea was quickly adopted by chapters of the sorority. Delta Sigma Theta in the United States and abroad has produced innumerable Jabberwocks. On December 28, 1947, Jabberwock was formally adopted and copyrighted by Delta Sigma Theta.
