Zeta Phi Beta became the first black greek-lettered organization to develop both adult and youth auxiliary groups.


Zeta Amicae - Friends of Zeta


As early as 1940, graduate chapters of Zeta Phi Beta began to realize the importance of the prestige, good will and cooperation of women who, for various reasons, do not possess college degrees but believe in the ideals of Zeta. ?The Amicae women render valuable services to the sorority and their respective communities. Under the administration of Soror Lullelia Harrison, the first Amicae chapter was organized in Omaha, Nebraska in 1947 making Zeta the first sorority in the National Pan-Hellenic Council to organize an auxiliary group.? The second group of Amicae was organized in Houston in 1948 leading to the Zeta Amicae adoption into the national structure in December 1948 in Philadelphia.


The Purpose of the Amicae is to...
lend assistance to Zeta activities
promote good public relations between Zetas and other women in the community

make non-Greek women feel closer to the program of a Greek-letter group
assure more cooperation in community projects sponsored by Zetas
