This man was one of the original Patriots of the American Revolution in Boston. Both he and his son fought with George Washington as part of The Continental Army. He Founded Black Freemasonry in America on March 6th 1775, one month before the outbreak of open rebellion. The foundation of a Black Masonic Lodge in Boston's built a fundamentally new "African" movement on a preexisting institutional foundation. Within that movement they asserted emotional, mythical, and genealogical links to the continent of Africa and its peoples founded upon ideals of liberty, equality and peace.
Here are his words and here is his story.
“My brethren, let us pay all due respect to all who God had put in places of honor over us: do justly and be faithful to them that hire you, and treat them with the respect they may deserve; but worship no man. Worship God, this much is your duty as Christians and as masons”
Prince Hall (1735 – 1807) was an African American noted as a tireless abolitionist, for his leadership in the free black community in Boston, and as the founder of Prince Hall Masonry. Hall tried to gain New England’s enslaved and free blacks a place in Freemasonry, education and the military, which were some of the most crucial spheres of society in his time. Hall is considered the founder of “Black Freemasonry” in the United States, known today as Prince Hall Freemasonry. Hall formed the African Grand Lodge of North America. Prince Hall was unanimously elected its Grand Master and served until his death in 1807. He lobbied for education rights for black children and was active in the back-to-Africa movement. Many historians regard Prince Hall as one of the prominent African-Americans during the early years of the United States. Hall was born in 1735. Hall may have been born in Barbados, somewhere else in the Caribbean, or in Africa. It is more likely that he was a native of New England, by age 11 Prince Hall was a slave to Boston tanner William Hall. By 1770, Prince Hall was a free, literate black man living in Boston. The manumission certificate for Prince Hall, dated one month after the Boston Massacre [April, 1770], stated that "no longer Reckoned a slave, but [had] always accounted as a free man." Hall encouraged enslaved and freed blacks to serve the American colonial military. He believed that if blacks were involved in the founding of the new nation, it would aid in the attainment of freedom for all blacks. Hall proposed that the Massachusetts Committee of Safety allow blacks to join the military. He and fellow supporter’s petition compared Britain’s colonial rule with the enslavement of blacks. Their proposal was declined .England issued a proclamation that guaranteed freedom to blacks who enlisted in the British army. Once the British Army filled its ranks with black troops, the Continental Army reversed its decision and allowed blacks into the military. It is believed, but not certain, that Hall was one of the six "Prince Halls" from Massachusetts to serve during the war. .His son, Primus, was a Revolutionary War soldier, having enlisted at the age 19.Having served during the Revolutionary War, many African Americans expected, but did not receive, racial equality when the war ended. With the intention of improving the lives of fellow African Americans, Prince Hall collaborated with others to propose legislation for equal rights. He also hosted community events, such as educational forums and theatre events to improve the lives of black people .Many of the original members of the African Masonic Lodge had served during the Revolutionary War. Prince Hall was interested in the Masonic fraternity because Freemasonry was founded upon ideals of liberty, equality and peace. Prior to the American Revolutionary War, Prince Hall and fourteen other free black men petitioned for admittance to the white Boston St. John’s Lodge. They were turned down. Having been rejected by colonial Freemasonry, Hall and 15 others sought and were initiated into Masonry by members of Lodge No. 441 of the Grand Lodge of Ireland on March 6, 1775 The Lodge was attached to the British forces stationed in Boston. Hall and other freedmen founded African Lodge No. 1 and he was named Grand Master. Prince Hall and those who joined him to found Boston's African Masonic Lodge built a fundamentally new "African" movement on a preexisting institutional foundation. Within that movement they asserted emotional, mythical, and genealogical links to the continent of Africa and its peoples.

As we complete yet another year, and prepare for a new, let us not forget that we must awaken to each new day as an opportunity to shine brightly with the Light we work so hard to develop over time. It is by choice that we gain knowledge, by fate that we rehearse what we've learned to gain experience, and through time develop wisdom. "A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty." [Sir Winston Churchill]. On behalf of the Brothers of Cypress, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and have a safe and prosperous New Year!
