History of the Boulé
At the dawn of the twentieth century black men of distinction had long functioned in various leadership posts, especially in the churches and benevolent association movement. Some, notably Frederick Douglass among them, had even served in high government posts. But by and large they lived lives separate from those of the black masses and the white professionals. In 1904 a small group in Philadelphia set out to create an organization that would provide a vehicle for men of standing and like tastes to come together to know the best of one another.
Eta Boulé of St. Louis, Missouri, the seventh established member boulé of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, celebrated its Centennial on November 30, 2012, exactly 100 years from the date of its establishment. To commemorate the momentous occasion, upon the endorsement of Archon C. Savoy Brummer, and incorporating suggestions from Grapter Leo Ming as well as Grammateus Richard White, Archousa Dena Brummer graciously applied her prodigious skill to design a magnificent Eta Boulé Centennial Commemorative stamp.
