The name of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated will be prominently displayed in the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture in perpetuity. The Sorority’s name will be etched in stone for the September 24, 2016 opening of the museum when President Barack H. Obama cuts the ribbon.
The Museum is located in a prominent position on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Artifacts of Zeta’s history will be displayed in the Museum along with other Divine 9 organizations. The exhibits will tell the African American story from slavery, to the Civil Rights movement, through the presidency of President Barack Obama. Zeta’s contribution will be highlighted in the museum with other major donors.
This Centennial Commission initiative was funded with proceeds from the 2020 Visionary Campaign, the first of several major initiatives to be completed by the Commission. Further, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated matched the Centennial Commission donation through Boulé 2014 profit and a generous anonymous gift.
