My name is Robert L. Ximines Jr. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, and am a member of The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania. I am a Past Master of Light of Elmwood Lodge #45, and am currently serving the Grand Lodge as “The Director of Library and Archives” for the State of Pennsylvania. The significance of my affiliation and position in the Grand Lodge is that we are celebrating two hundred years of Prince Hall Masonry in Pennsylvania. The only institution with a longer tenure, is the Black Church! Quite an accomplishment for Men of Color in the State of Pennsylvania.
