True American Lodge #2
Making Good Men Better
The Mission of Freemasonry is to promote a way of life that binds like-minded men in a worldwide brotherhood, which transcends all religious, ethnic, cultural, social and educational differences. The development of this bond is facilitated through teaching the great principles of brotherly love, relief and truth. While outwardly expressing these principles through its fellowship, the brotherhood also demonstrates daily its sincere commitment to serving God (first and foremost), then family, country, neighbors and self. We are guided by our mission to "make good men better," and we do so by supporting and encouraging them to act with virtue and integrity, and discipline their passions as they travel life's sojourn.
OUR CIVIL RIGHTS HERITAGE
Prince Hall’s petition writing for social justice began in 1777 with his request to the General Court to give slaves their freedom, a right to every person. In this petition, of January 13, 1777, Prince Hall called to the government to be held accountable for ripping many Africans out of their homeland.
He challenged the government to stand by the principles it stands for, “a natural and unalienable right to that freedom, which the great parent of the Universe hath bestowed equally on all Mankind.” This petition calls for the freedom of all children, as well as other slaves not free, born in a land of liberty to receive their freedom at the age of 21. Through his writing he wishes to correct the inconsistencies in the State, and feels compelled to assure that justice is attained for all.
