Freemasonry is one of the world's oldest and largest non-religious, non-political, fraternal and charitable organizations.It is a society of men concerned with moral and spiritual values. It also teaches concern for people, care for the less fortunate and help for those in need.
Prince Hall Freemasonry is the oldest, continually-active, African American fraternal organization within the State of Illinois. The namesake of an African American abolitionist, civic-servant and pioneer in Freemasonry, the fraternity has a direct line to the Mother Grand Lodge of all Freemasonry in England. Like Prince Hall, Prince Hall Freemasons are dedicated to making good men better through service to mankind. There are hundreds of thousands of Prince Hall Freemasons across the United States of America and beyond.
