Be Strong! The Life and Times of Vashti Turley Murphy
(Book Signing/Discussion)

Ms. Rachael Murphy Humphrey will host a book signing for the book, "Be Strong! The Life and Times of Vashti Turley Murphy." The book details the life of Vashti Murphy, one of the founders of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The event will take place on January 11th, during the Delta Centennial week.

About the Book:
This 2008 revised "Be Strong" edition is in honor of the beloved author, Dr. Elizabeth "Bettye" Murphy Moss, who taught how to honor her mother, Vashti Turley Murphy with unconditional love. Their legacy of serving others continues to live through their rich family heritage.

Dr. Elizabeth Murphy Moss was the former publisher of the Afro-American Newspapers. The book relates in Founder Murphy's own words: how she and 21 other young women founded the national service sorority at Howard University in 1913. Proceeds of the sale of this book will go to the Vashti Turley Murphy Scholarship Fund.
