The launch of the Prince Hall Cigars brand in 2020 seems particularly timely with the release of a cigar designed dot honor one of the first black freemasons in the United States. Prince Hall is looked upon by historians as one of the most influential members of the free black community during the founding of the United States. Prince Hall was a key member of the battle to free the people of the United States from British rule and to lead the country following the declaration of independence.
Following the freeing of the nation from British rule, Prince Hall became one of the leading members of the abolitionist movement. David Blanco and Blanco Cigars believe the work of Prince Hall is worthy of being honored for more than his role as a member of the freemasons alone. Prince Hall was a prominent freemason and was one of the first black masons in the U.S. who saw his lodge recognized as a full member of the Freemason movement in 1787. In 1787, the Grand Lodge of England granted Prince Hall’s lodge its own charter as African Lodge Number One.
The release of Prince Hall Cigars shows the commitment to diversity and the origins of Freemasons around the world of David Blanco. Blanco Cigars hopes the rich history of Prince Hall is reflected in the texture and flavor of Prince Hall Cigars.
