The Mu Zeta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.

The Mu Zeta Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. was founded on April 15, 1976 on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Through manly deeds, scholarship, and love for all mankind, the chapter aspires to uplift and help the campus and local community.


The Miss Black and Gold Scholarship Pageant

The Miss Black and Gold Pageant is an event whose primary purpose is to foster the inextricable connection between success and confidence amongst young women. This pageant spotlights the young women’s etiquette, communication skills, intelligence, and beauty. In all, the Miss Back and Gold Pageant encompasses true womanhood, achievement, and confidence. Academic excellence and scholarship are greatly emphasized in the competition, representing central criteria in the process of the selection of the pageant winner. The fraternity provides the contestants with scholarships to assist with the financial obligations associated with post-secondary studies. This year’s pageant underscores a central element of grace and poise: Uzuri. The Swahili term literally translates to ‘beauty’ in English. It is the embodiment of free expression and self-acceptance. Contestants personify this ideal, taking to the stage in competitions of diction, elegance, and talent.
