Many thanks to Brother Ralph McNeal and Brother John B. Williams, Editor of the Phylaxis Magazine, for inviting me to expand my article "Freemasonry's African Image Problem" which appears in the 4th Quarter 2010 issue (Vol. 37, No. 3).
The Phylaxis Society was established as an international research organization that concentrates on the history of Prince Hall Freemasonry. Membership is open to any Freemason whose grand lodge is recognized by the Conference of Prince Hall Grand Masters, or recognized by the United Grand Lodge of England. Their quarterly magazine has been published since 1974.
