Pleasant Plains in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Fortitude Plaza is a gift to Howard University from Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. It was established in commemoration of the Sorority's Centennial Anniversary and dedicated on July 11, 2013. Designed by four female architectural students under the direction of Dean Emeritus Harry G. Robinson III, the design affirms Fortitude's relationship to Founders Library and restores the original landscape plan conceptualized by Landscape Architect David Williston in 1932.
