A Noble Fight examines the metaphors and meanings in 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 thought with vast archival research--including the invention of an extraordinary number of nineteenth-century documents of an African American Freemason Lodge--Corey D. B. Walker presents an leading edge viewpoint 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 serious theoretical lens for realizing the detailed methods African americans have built a notably democratic political imaginary via racial harmony and political nationalism, forcing us to reassess even more circumspectly the complicated dating among voluntary institutions and democratic politics.
