History of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. is a community-conscious, action-oriented international sorority established January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C.  The Founders of the Sorority chose not to embrace the tenets of established sororities and charted Zeta Phi Beta Sorority.


Founders Arizona Cleaver, Myrtle Tyler, Viola Tyler, Fannie Pettie and Pearl Neal, known as our Five Pearls, established the organization predicated on 4 major principles: Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood, and Finer Womanhood. Through these principles, members of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority encourage the highest standards of scholarship through scientific, literary, cultural and educational programs; promote service projects on college campuses and in the community; foster sisterhood; and exemplify the ideal of Finer Womanhood.
