R:.W:. Kwame Acquaah Elected Grand Master for GLofDC

Belated congratulations to Right Worshipful Kwame Acquaah, who was elected as Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia in October (he won't be installed until December 13th). He is the first black Mason to be made Grand Master in a mainstream (not Prince Hall) jurisdiction of the United States. It's unfortunate he has been handed the recent dispute with New York before even entering office.

Congratulations to Brother Kwame, It is interesting to note that just as we have elected the nation's first African-American President, Brother Kwame has been elected as the GLofDC's first GM. This is truly a historic event. My best to GM elect Kwame and to the GLofDC.
