Jubilee Day Celebration

(Celebrated in June; however, this year the Desert will observe on May 31st)


The Nobles of the Desert of Georgia, as well as all Nobles around the domain, celebrate Jubilee Day which commemorates one of the most important days in the history of the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine (A.E.A.O.N.M.S.), North & South America and its Jurisdictions, Inc., Prince Hall Affiliated.

            The History of Jubilee day began in August 1914, with a lawsuit against our order, which ended in a historic decision by The United States Supreme Court on June 3, 1929.  The lawsuit attempted to deprive A.E.A.O.N.M.S. of the right to work and be recognized as Shriners.  It also extended those implications to all appending Prince Hall Masons established in the United States of America.  The Unanimous decision of the Nine Supreme Court Justices which upheld our rights to work and be recognized as Shriners, legitimized Prince Hall Masonry in this Country as well as other Fraternal Orders composed of Black Members, which are of similar Organizations, Doctrine and Purpose as those composed of White Members.

                  The long, fifteen-year court battle was a sacrifice of devastating proportions for our economically disadvantaged Brotherhood.  Yet, with unwavering determination, unified effort and a cost of seventy-seven thousand dollars, our leaders met the challenge and were successful in their cause.
