This show is the beginning of a series that I will conduct on the subject matter of the first black fraternity, Sigma Pi Phi or better known as the Boule.
My research begins with my interview with the late Steve Cokely. Cokley passed away in 2012 since my interview with him, but the wealth of knowledge he left behind is of great detail.
This subject matter will not just focus on the Boule, because it is layered with many “rabbit holes” that will take the show in many different directions. Through that you will find that the Boule is not the source but simply a subsidiary of a bigger entity.
One fascinating thing happened during this broadcast. A gentleman called into the show from Chicago by the name of Robert X, who actually researched and assisted Steve Cokely during the early 80’s and beyond. In fact, he stated to me that Steve Cokely was his mentor and showed him all the knowledge and research that helped lay the foundation of what he does today.
Pay close attention to the information that Robert X shares, because it is layered with information worth looking into. Nonetheless, take notes of the information shared in this broadcast and go beyond what I state on the show and indulge yourself on the knowledge at hand.
