In an unconfirmed report Bro. Tim Bonney of Freemasonry Resources posted on Saturday, Aug. 12 that the Grand Lodge of Delaware has now recognized Prince Hall Masonry. We have not been able to independently confirm this report, but if true, this leaves only the southern states holding onto their racist heritage by not recognizing as Masons the Brethren of the mostly black Prince Hall lodges.
According to this map, provided by Bro. Paul Bessel, the Grand Lodges of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina still do not in any way recognize Prince Hall Masonry. Another ten states' Grand Lodges still have only limited recognition, and some states that recognized Prince Hall still do not allow visitation between lodges.
