This series can be read in full in the new book, Who IZ the Boulé?: The History of America's First Black Fraternity and the Derailment Toward Afrikan Self-Reliance, by M'Bwebe Ishangi.
Who IZ the Boulé? is a hybrid of the books ‘Behold A Palehorse’ and the epic ‘Stolen Legacy’ chronologically detailing the historic timeline of individuals who cre- ated white and then black organizations to sustain the likes of Toynbee’s sentiments.
This book details over twenty years of research and first-hand experience with the intent of “offering, for many the first time, a side of organized academic and cultural intelligentsia responsible for the derailment of Afrikan people toward self- reliance from Alexander the (not so) Great to W.E.B. DuBois,” he states. “Many of our black organizations today were founded by the actual individuals responsible for the intergenerational mental, spiritual, and socioeconomic conditions we’ve endured that has had a polarizing effect on how we see ourselves in the world. What’s alarming is black individuals and organizations had to be created in order for the practice to be sustained.”
Inside this 281 page book you will learn of the forefathers responsible as well as the subordinate black organizations created to divert and dissect us over the last century— namely Sigma Pi Phi, Fraternity, Inc, aka the Boulé. “You will find many of the faces of Black leadership have been handpicked by overseers who groomed them to steer us clear away from self-reliance. If we are to have a say for the direction of our future, an assessment of our organizations is in order for they have failed to liberate us as intended,” Ishangi notes.
Both full of information as well as a pager turner, Ishangi believes this book will aid in the reclamation of our past to enable us to be the true vanguards of our future.
There’s a side of America's first black fraternity that has stood in the shadow of Black organizations as a puppeteer since its inception making it difficult to see any bad they could do... until now. Learn of this groups role in sustaining the Greek myth over Afrikan identity, which in turn has been a vital obstacle toward self-reliance for Afrikan people. Charles H. Wesley revealed the Boulé's base mission quoting founder Henry McKee Minton in their history book, 'History of Sigma Pi Phi: First of the Negro-American Greek-Letter Fraternities’ page.28:
“In summary, Minton wanted to create an organization which would partake, in his own words, of “the tenets of Skull & Bones at Yale and Phi Beta Kappa… for Sigma Pi Phi members are still chosen on these bases and departures from them have been rare.”
For those who consider themselves “woke”, It’s about time you learn Who IZ the Boulé.
