Zeta Phi Beta Inc. is an international and historically Black sorority began by five women at Howard University on Jan. 16, 1920. According to the organization’s website, the founders wanted the organization to be “a movement, a belief system that reflects, at its core, the desire to provide true Service, to embrace Scholarship, to set a standard for Sisterly Love and to define the noble concept of Finer Womanhood.”

The sorority has 850 chapters throughout the U.S., the Caribbean, Europe, Asia and Africa, where it became the first Greek-lettered organization to charter on the continent.

Since its beginnings, Zeta Phi Beta has focused on addressing social issues.  In celebration of Founders’ Day, EBONY.com shares the prominent singers who are members of the esteemed group.
