From Mosaic Templars to Royal Circle of Friends: Identifying Arkansas’s African American Fraternal Headstones
Dr. Blake Wintory, director of the Lakeport Plantation, will present, “From Mosaic Templars to Royal Circle of Friends: Identifying Arkansas’s African American Fraternal Headstones.”

Arkansas’s African American cemeteries are dotted with monuments from fraternal organizations founded in late 19th and early 20th centuries. Membership was often social, but also came with desirable sickness and death benefits. Several Arkansas-based fraternal organizations, like the Mosaic Templars, Supreme Royal Circle of Friends, and Knights and Daughters of Tabor, provided standardized monuments as part of their benefits.

In this presentation you will learn about the rise and decline of these organizations and see examples African American fraternal monuments throughout Arkansas and the Mississippi Delta.
