Clark S. Brown and Sons
The Clark S. Brown and Sons Funeral home is still in business at East 7th Street and Patterson Avenue at the edge of downtown Winston-Salem. The funeral home was established in 1928 by an African-American fraternal order, the Prince Hall Masons. A breakthrough of sorts occurred in 2008 when the Ancient, Free, and Accepted Masons of North Carolina (white Masons, founded 1787) and the Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of North Carolina and Its Jurisdictions (African-American Masons, founded 1870) finally formally recognized each other's existence.
