Willie L. Brown Middle School Cornerstone Ceremony
Grand Lodge officers from the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of California and the Masons of California Grand Lodge came together with the Honorable Willie L. Brown Jr. for a historic cornerstone ceremony.
Prince Hall (1735-1807) was the organizer and founder of Masonry among men of Color. Thought to have been born in Barbados around 1735, he first worked as a leather-dresser, later as a laborer by day and studying at night. He educated himself and became a leader in the efforts to eliminate slavery and bring about a stronger unified people. He was instrumental in freeing many slaves. He was an abolitionist and a patriot, as he volunteered to fight in the American Revolution and was later accepted in the Continental Army led by George Washington.
