The roots of our Beloved and Sacred Fraternity date back to 2007 in Oxford, Mississippi and connect us to a tradition of Brotherhood started in the United States of America in the 1940s.

Beginning in 2007, The Honorable Paul M. Johnson envisioned an organization that would cater to the intellectual, social, and community needs of a variety of men and male-identified individuals.

Nurturing that vision through persistent work, Johnson and The Honorable DeJuan J. Sharp founded Zeta Alpha Delta Fraternity, Incorporated on Wednesday, January 9th, 2013. One week later, with the help of Brother Brandon A. Loving, Zeta Alpha Delta Fraternity, Inc. was incorporated in the State of Tennessee.

Within months, dozens of men across Tennessee and Mississippi joined our Beloved Brotherhood and secured our existence in the Neo-Classical organizational community and the wider world.

Our Chapters and Colonies are located in Tennessee, Mississippi,Virginia, and Florida. Our Members live in Georgia, Maryland,Arkansas,Texas, and beyond. Many are stationed overseas as they serve in the United States Armed Forces.
