Mission of Masonry and Free Men Everywhere
African American freemasons
Prince Hall Freemasonry, inspired by the exclusion of blacks from other American lodges, is the largest and oldest black fraternal organization in the world. Blacks have come a long way, but are still quite far from "total equality, total freedom, total opportunities, and the complete eradication of racial distrust and hatred." Many quotes offer that we should be bound by love. Davis's comments include statistics regarding the educational attainment levels of whites, blacks and Hispanics and discussed his hope that education will erase social and economic barriers. Delivered on 14 January 1989.
