Symbolically Speaking: African Lodge #1, The Context (HARDCOVER)
A wonderful and in depth exploration of the relationship between Western Freemasonry and African initation systems, this book explores the theory that Prince Hall and the fourteen other founders of African Lodge Freemasonry (what is currently called Prince Hall Freemasonry) used the word "African" when naming their lodge as a clue, giving direction to the future generations of Prince Hall Freemasons. This sign tells us to seek more light and spiritual understanding from an African perspective and through the African systems of initiation. The author supports his theory by referencing the large amounts of African symbolism found throughout the Craft, all of which has been acknowledged for more than a century by Western Freemasonry.
