Jax Beta Alpha Zeta Chapter Induct New Members

Tuesday, March 30th Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Beta Alpha Zeta Chapter inducted nine news sisters into the chapter.  The inducted women are college educated women that have bounded together as sisters for the purpose of promoting and encouraging educational programs, charitable projects on college campuses and within the community, while fostering the spirit of sisterly love and the ideals of finer womanhood. Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. was founded January 16, 1920, at Howard University, Washington, D.C.  The Klan was very active during this period and the Harlem Renaissance was acknowledged as the first important movement of Black artists and writers in the U.S.  This same year the Volstead Act became effective heralding the start of Prohibition and Tennessee delivered the crucial 36th ratification for the final adoption of the 19th amendment giving women the right to vote.  The worst and longest economic recession to hit the U.S. would define the end of the decade-The Great Depression.
