Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorp. is an international, historically black Greek-lettered sorority founded Jan. 16, 1920 on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C, by five women affectionately known as “The Five Pearls.”
The five coeds chose the name Zeta Phi Beta. Phi Beta was taken from Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorp., to “seal and signify the relationship between the two organizations.” Our founding principles are Scholarship, Service, Sisterhood and Finer Womanhood. Our motto is “A community-conscious, action-oriented organization.”
