Recently there was a convention in town. It was, as far as I could tell, attended solely by middle aged and up black people. Various attendees were wearing various combinations of red fezzes with what appeared to be Egyptian style wording and quite large and intricate gold necklaces and jewelry.
I’ve always associated fezzes with Shriners, which I have also associated with old, white guys. Might this have been a Shriner convention for minority members, or is there a mostly black religion out there that has similar accoutrements?
