In his classic book, "Alice in Wonderland," Lewis Carroll created the character known as the Jabberwock. This mythical character called together all the creatures of his kingdom for the purpose of sharing their talents – a gala event.
This 90-year old tradition was, idea conceived by Soror Marion Conover of Boston’s Iota Chapter in 1925, began as a means of raising scholarship funds. As part of Soror Conover's idea, a variety of performers competed for monetary prizes. Thus, from this successful venture, Delta Sigma Theta’s Jabberwock event was born and became a part of Delta tradition.
Soon, Iota's annual production was adopted by chapters of the sorority throughout the country. Since that time, innumerable Jabberwocks have been produced by chapters in the United States and abroad. On December 28, 1947, Jabberwock was formally adopted and copyrighted by Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. chapters have convened various organizations in the community for the express purpose of fostering positive relationships and providing an evening of fun and entertainment. The proceeds from Jabberwock are designated for scholarship and community programs.
