Founder Dr. Minton: "In the building of the organizations plan, reliance was placed upon Greek history and tradition.” The quote below is from the group’s official history:
The founders' devotion to equality and mutual respect stemmed in large measure from the devotion to democratic traditions that they traced to ancient Greece and to the traditions of leadership that existed there among free men. Central to this idea was the Boulé: the Council of Chiefs, or "the leading noblemen of the society.”
Researchers have discovered that the Boule is a black greek secret society based on another secret society founded at Yale University called Skull & Bones. Inside the Boule' history book -- written by Charles H. Wesley, a Boule' member, (also wrote the history books for Alpha Phi Alpha, the Elks, and Prince Hall Masons) wrote on page 28, why one of it's founding member's, Minton, wanted to create such an organization:"Minton wanted to create an organization which would partake in the tenets of the Skull & Bones at Yale."
The 1990, incoming Boule' president, Dr. Benjamin Major said he was aware of charges that the group is more interested in socializing and congratulating itself on its wealth and success, exclusively, rather than making a substantial contribution to the rest of black America. He said, "We don't want to appear as if we were remaining above the problems of most black people. We know we didn't get here solely by the dint of our own hard work. We owe a lot of people, AND we have to give back to our brothers and sisters."
Is this enough?
