Jesse Jackson Among Top
100 African-American Freemasons

From the marbled corridors of Capitol Hill to the executive suites of corporate America to the boardrooms of community based organizations, Prince Hall Freemasons are playing a major role in shaping national policy. With passionate and powerful voice they are articulating the needs and desires of African-Americans in every stratum of American life.[1]
The Phylaxis Society had requested photographs of all of the Leadership within Prince Hall Freemasonry, many was not received. However, irregardless if the photographs were used or not, we have listed the names of those Men of Mark in Prince Hall Freemasonry in America. There are many Prince Hall Freemasons whose names should be included in this listing, for instance we know that many of the Mayors across the nation are Prince Hall Freemasons, therefore, we ask our members to furnish the Society with those names. The names can be sent to The Phylaxis Society, Public Affairs Office, Post Office Box 2232; Kansas City, MO. 64142.
