While the mainstream grand lodges of most southern states continue to pretend it is still 1950 by refusing to recognize black men as Masons, some of our brethren north of the Mason-Dixon line seem to have progressed well into the 21st century.
Cornerstone Lodge in Duxbury, Massaschusetts installed new officers on September 29, including W. Bro. Jack Sutton as Worshipful Master. W. Bro. Sutton was raised in Texas, in Waco Lodge No. 92.
The installing officers were guests from the Massachusetts Prince Hall Grand Lodge, Past Grand Master Chester Robert Isles of Prince Hall, and R.W. Grand Marshal Gerald Thaxton of Prince Hall.
W. Bro. Sutton served up Texas chili at the meal following the installation.
It's good, and pleasant, to see brothers dwelling together in unity.
