Black Greekdom is mourning the passing of 79-year-old Pat Spencer this week. Pat was a prominent member of Zeta Phi Beta who had dedicated her life to the fight for the civil rights.
Soror Spencer worked with the NAACP in Tampa for decades. As a teenager, she worked alongside Rosa Parks in Montgomery, helping plan the historic Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Spencer helped organize several major trips sponsored by the NAACP from Tampa, including this past March to Selma, Alabama to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday. She also helped plan a trip to Washington, D.C. in 2013 for the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.
Funeral services have not yet been announced.
