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.
Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity is proud to announce the 100th Anniversary of Theta Boulé, Kansas City, Mo. At the behest of then Grand Sire Archon McCard, Drs. William J. Thompkins and Lloyd E. Bailey set Theta Boulé apart on May 22, 1915. Since that time, Theta Boulé has accomplished much, including establishing their Archousai, creating the Theta Boulé Foundation and supporting social action programs in Kansas City, such as the Theta Boulé and Theta Boulé Foundation Scholarship.
