By Corey D. B. Walker

A Noble Fight examines the metaphors and meanings at the back of the African American appropriation of the tradition, ritual, and establishment of freemasonry in navigating the contested area of yank democracy. Combining cultural and political concept with wide archival research--including the invention of an extraordinary choice of nineteenth-century documents of an African American Freemason Lodge--Corey D. B. Walker offers an leading edge point of view on American politics and society throughout the lengthy transition from slavery to freedom. With nice care and element, Walker argues that African American freemasonry offers a severe theoretical lens for figuring out the precise methods African american citizens have built a appreciably democratic political imaginary via racial harmony and political nationalism, forcing us to think again even more circumspectly the advanced courting among voluntary institutions and democratic politics.
