Courage, Consistency, Tenacity, and Faith mark the lifelong journey of this giant of a
man. Rising from tobacco fields, Reverend Joseph E. Boone was a man of
uncommon vision, charged and driven by formidable dedication.
With unflagging zeal, he carried forth his conviction that all citizens have the right to
dignified participation in the American economy's mainstream- both as producers
and consumers. Using superb strategic and organizational skills, in concert with his
civil rights colleagues, he developed models for mobilizing consumer and labor
protest campaigns that forced the American business community to acknowledge the
pivotal role of the black consumer and worker in America's economy.
The Joseph E. Boone Memorial Foundation is dedicated to continuing his work of
serving those at need in our community, and throughout our nation. His spirit lives on
in the work of this organization.
