On this day in 1920, Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated was founded at Howard University.
Zeta Phi Beta and it’s guiding principles means a lot to me as a creative professional – I’m a member of the sorority, after all!
Ideas came about to put together a creative shoot relating to Zeta with a crew of sorors in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for months dating back to last year, but consistently put it on the backburner. After months of mulling it over, it was put this project to life just in time for Founders’ Day (even if it was freezing!). In spite of a few setbacks with putting this together, I’m beyond glad that this came to fruition.
Enjoy the collection of photos known as “Finer In The City”. To my sorors reading this and everywhere else across the world:
Happy Founders’ Day! Stay fierce. Stay fly. More importantly, stay finer.
Also, stay tuned for another shoot like this.
