I've been to the funeral of a well respected mason in the community, and they wore similar things, some with kilts. The gloves were probably for the pallbearers.

You already posted this exact quote. Stop trying to magnify yourself as a "cool" freemason. It's not respected around here.

it is clearly that you need to know more about freemasonry,
do some research,and you will see the chains gloves,and if you look clearly you can see the mark on paper.
the gloves and rows and colours are ranks.no effence,just wanted to make it clear
all the best.

It looks a bit photo shopped to me.
Look at Jay-Z's skin tone compared to those sitting next to him.
Why is he all bright and shiny and the others are dull?


Sorry but are we looking at the same picture? If anything, I'd say he looks slightly less shiny as compared to those around him. Also, the shadows match nicely which means that if this were a fake, somebody was exceptionally patient for nothing in particular. I mean to me, this is nothing more insidious than a funeral and if he was there paying homage to someone, what precisely is the issue?

Being a MM myself, brother, do not forget the installation of officers which happens yearly, and is open to the public.


Not as an absolute. We just had our Installation and Lodge was called off for a short span to allow the wife of the new Master to enter the lodge room for photos. Given the size and mixture of the group, I'd be surprised if this was anything other than a funeral

It is astounding that 6 people would star you.

See the uniform? YES? Thats what Masons wear..

And yes, there are black lodges. They're called "prince Hall"

Just in clarification but Prince Hall is a proper name. In deference to a man who has had a profound influence on the black community, getting his name right seems like a small expectation

How did I get his name wrong?


I realize that Prince Hall was a man. But its also a Masonic institution.

A niggle on my part. Having a wife who's a literary editor is obviously rubbing off.
That said, the man deserves props for having persevered in moving the craft forward in a circumstance where being black was 2 1/2+ strikes.

I think he was refering to the capitalization of 'Prince'. Most likely not an intended oversight on your part.

As opposed to the artist formerly known as Prince Hall…

No, not an absolute. But depending on how the grand lodge works in your state, it does allow for women to be in a lodge occupied by masons in ceremonial attire. That's all I was stating.

Not a state but a province. As I said, not all Grand Lodges have the same rules pertaining to Masonic attire outside a Lodge meeting. As has been suggested elsewhere, given the layout of the room and the mixture of Masons and non-Masons, I'd be surprised if the photo wasn't taken in a church and I'd say it's about even money that this is part of a funeral service

I'm just guessing here, but I think it is a funeral service or something else with Masons in attendance.

With all the suits, and the fact that there are photographers, I was thinking it is probably an installation ceremony. They happen around Holiday time, and they are open to the public. I've never heard of any photographers taking pictures during an open lodge. It has to be some other type of ceremony.

ETA:
Holy Crap, I thought this was a new thread.

around here we have 2 seperate lodges

one for whites and there is one for blacks


blacks aren't allowed to step foot in the white lodge in town and vice versa. I was always told all masonic lodges are split

there are white only masonic lodges and black only and the white only thinks they are the real masons

it's a whole bunch of bunk really.

That's a shame. I understand why Prince Hall lodges want to exist independent of those under other Grand Lodges, but where I live, blacks can join regular lodges and whites can join Prince Hall. One of the first lessons of Masonry is that it's the internal, not the external, that qualifies a man to be made a Mason. I only wish some of our older members would remember that lesson and take it to heart.

This is not true in New Jersey. We frequently attend each other's lodges.
