    Carter G. Woodson was a member of Omega Psi Phi. Woodson was found receiving money from the Carnegie, Lord-Spellman, and Rockefeller Foundations to help his education programs.

    Carter G. Woodson became well known for his infamous quote,
    “When you control a man’s thinking, you do not have to worry about his actions. You do not have to tell him not to stand here or go yonder, he will find his proper place and stay in it. You do not need to send him to the back door. He will go without being told. In fact, if there is no back door, he will cut one for his special benefit.”

    Woodson became controversial and wrote his bestselling Miseducation Of The Negro, years after being exiled from the Boule’ along with DuBois. Malcolm X is claimed to have called the Boule as the Big 6. The logo of the Boule is the Sphinx. A sphinx is a third part woman, one-third eagle and one-third lion (notice the breasts and wings) among Greek mythology. The Sphinx was there to guard something.
