This is an insightful podcast but not completely accurate. Although Pike was influential, Masonry itself is much more than Pike's contributions and the origin of Prince Hall Freemason predates Albert Pike by many years. Prince Hall died before Albert Pike was even born. Even before Pike's first writings on Masonry, Prince Hall was long established. Therefore, it is inaccurate to say that Prince Hall's split (black and white) was due to the writings of Albert Pike. Prince Hall Freemasonry existed for decades before Albert Pike began writing on Masonry.
