Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. History

Founders (From left to right): Arizona Cleaver Stemons, Pearl Anna Neal, Myrtle Tyler Faithful, Viola Tyler Goings, Fannie Pettie Watts

Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on  January 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. by five co-eds. These women dared to depart from the traditional coalitions for Black women and sought to establish a new organization predicated on the precepts of Scholarship, Service, Sisterly Love, and Finer Womanhood.
