Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated is an international, historically black Greek-lettered sorority founded on January 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, Incorporated 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.
