More Masonic Grand Lodges Issue Unity Statements On Protests

Joint unity statement from New York grand lodges


by Christopher Hodapp

In the wake of nationwide demonstrations, protests and rioting over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, several Masonic jurisdictions have issued joint unity statements from the 'mainstream' state grand lodges and Prince Hall Affiliated grand lodges. In addition to the District of Columbia and Missouri which were reported here previously, similar unity statements have been issued in New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Illinois, all posted here. (Click images to enlarge each document.)

I'm sure there have been others, but these are the ones I have received so far. This post may be updated instead of creating new ones.

  1. This is extremely positive. Will the corresponding general conferences of grand masters, and the corresponding collateral bodies, do the same? The Eastern Star for example? Will the white grand lodges that do not welcome African-Americans now change? Will the George Washington memorial in Alexandria add Prince Hall grand lodges to its board and tell the story in its exhibits of Prince Hall, or continue as a segregated institution in those respects?
