When I told a friend that I was joining Akbar Lodge in Chicago,
he told me he had visions of white-haired ladies sitting on
folding chairs. I then told him about the last meeting I had
attended. I was the only woman there and half the males were
African-American, of various ages. At one point, someone pulled
out a videotape, which we all watched on a television set.
I have recently joined a study group, as the Lodge sometimes
proved too advanced for me. The ages here range from twenties to
forties. No tea is allowed.
I agree that things have perked up. Seems the Annual Meeting and
Summer School has been livelier and more interesting since Algeo
