Prince Hall lodges recognized — and not recognized — by U.S. Grand Lodges
Grand Lodges of states marked in blue, plus Alaska, Hawaii and the District of Columbia, have extended recognition to Prince Hall lodges, which are totally or predominently composed of black (Negro, African-American, Men of Color — choose your phrase) Masons (as of 11-8-2004, source http://bessel.org/masrec/phachart.htm). My point is — the states marked in white have chosen not to recognize these men as Masons. Why?
