Zeta Phi Beta



Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on January 16, 1920, on the campus of  Howard University in Washington, D.C. as the sister organization to Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity. Five women chose not to embrace the tenets of established black sororities and chartered Zeta Phi Beta Sorority to encourage the highest standards of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; to promote service projects on college campuses and in the community; to foster sisterhood, and exemplify the ideal of Finer Womanhood. A private nonprofit organization, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority was incorporated in Washington, D.C. and in the state of Illinois. Zeta women are committed to the eradication of obstacles that impede progress for all mankind. Since its inception, the sorority has chronicled a number of "firsts" among the established black sororities. In addition to being the ONLY organization constitutionally bound to a fraternity the sorority was the first to charter international chapters, those in West Africa and Germany; to form adult and youth auxiliary groups (the Amicae, Archonettes, Amicettes and Pearlettes) and to organize its internal affairs within a central, national office administered by a paid staff.​
