Notable Members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority

Happy Founders Day Zeta Phi Beta! Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 16, 1920, at Howard University.

The organization’s official website reads:

“Five coeds envisioned a sorority which would directly affect positive change, chart a course of action for the 1920s and beyond, raise consciousness of their people, encourage the highest standards of scholastic achievement, and foster a greater sense of unity among its members. These women believed that sorority elitism and socializing overshadowed the real mission for progressive organizations and failed to address fully the societal mores, ills, prejudices, and poverty affecting humanity in general and the black community in particular.”

Zeta Phi Beta’s core ideals include scholarship, service, sisterhood and finer womanhood. The organization prides themselves in transforming communities through volunteer services and to date has well over 100,000 members worldwide.
