Back in March, the assembled members of the Grand Lodge F&AM of Tennessee voted in favor of joint recognition with the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Tennessee. On Saturday, October 2nd, the Grand Masters of both jurisdictions — MW Charles W. Mixon of the GLofTN and MW L. Lamont Banks — will sign an official treaty of joint recognition at a public ceremony.
The open event will be held at the downtown Nashville Masonic Temple at 100 7th Avenue, beginning at 2PM.
There remain just six states in which joint recognition has not yet been achieved: Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and West Virginia.
