International Free and Accepted Modern Masons, Inc. and Order of the Eastern Star

Dr. William Venoid Banks (Founder) developed the idea of a Fraternal Order based on Christian principles, values and beliefs in August 1950. International Masons owned the first Black TV Station in the USA (WGPR TV-62) and currently owns WGPR Hot 107.5 FM in Detroit, Michigan. 

Our History

International Masons adheres to the ancient moral principles and landmarks of Freemasonry developed in England back in the 1700’s. Due to advancements in technology, information sharing, and societal norms; things were modified in order to remain current and allow us to offer modern benefits to our members and society as a whole.


Our Fraternal Order is comprised of Masons, Eastern Stars, and Youth who serve in leadership roles on all levels. We have Supreme (National), National District (Regional), Grand (State) and Local Leaders who are responsible for providing guidance and leadership to the members within those Departments. 

Conventions & Meetings

Members within their local Masonic Lodges, Order of the Eastern Star Chapters, or Youth Courts come together to meet regularly. They learn the principles of our Order and participate in local events/activities. We also have Supreme, National District, and Grand Conventions as well for members to attend and learn more.
