Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated was founded January 16th, 1920 on the campus of Howard University. The five founders, Arizona Cleaver Stemons, Pearl Anna Neal, Myrtle Tyler Faithful, Viola Tyler Goings and Fannie Pettie Watts, were encouraged by the brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Incorporated. to form the organization as sister sorority to the fraternity. Zeta Phi Beta and Phi Beta Sigma are the first and only constitutionally bound organizations. Zeta Phi Beta was founded on the principles of Sisterly Love, Scholarship, Service and Finer Womanhood. The Sorority prides itself on being a community conscious, action oriented organizations and has many programs devoted to service and many partnerships with organizations committed to service. Zeta Phi Beta was not the first historically black sorority, but it is the Sorority of many firsts. These first include, the first to charter a chapter in Africa, the first to establish a national headquarters and the first to create auxiliaries .The Mighty Kaptivating Kappa Gamma Chapter was chartered in November of 1966. Since then, we have been committed to service on campus and in the Nashville community and we have provided the students at Fisk University with impacting and informative events. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority will continue to thrive at Fisk University through the Kappa Gamma Chapter for many years to come.
