Prince Hall honored at Cambridge Commons

Sept. 12th a monument to Prince Hall Masons founder Prince Hall will be unveiled on the Cambridge, MA  Commons.

William Murrell’s Blacksoftware.com Guide to Black Boston and African-American History has a great video on the importance of Hall to American history.

Among the Masons inspired by Hall was Abraham Lincoln Lewis, who launched Florida’s first black insurance company after learning about mutual benefit organizations as a Prince Hall lodge member.
