The May 1922 issue of The Crisis reported that "the Besmanbomara Literary Society has been organized by colored students at Colgate University, Hamilton, N.Y. Its object is the production of a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the achievements of the Negro in all the higher pursuits of life. All men who fulfill the following requirements are eligible for membership: 'Sympathy with the objects of society and affiliation by blood with the darker races.' The society meets weekly, each meeting being featured by a paper on some phase of racial progress."
