The anthology, Wisdom and Intellect for the 21st Century reflects on Scholarship, one of the Founding Principles of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. In this anthology, the second in a series published for the Sorority’s Centennial, there are innumerable facets of education explored in this 400+ page publication.
You will hear from and about our Sorors and Amicae. You will gain insight about scholarship from Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Incorporated, with whom we share the ideal. There are essays, letters, quotes and zingers contained on these pages that will assure you that scholarship is alive and well in the members, chapters and auxiliaries of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated. There are compelling, insightful, thoughtful, gratifying, and amusing stories that reflect the sorority’s first and perhaps most important founding ideal.
