Fruit of Islam uniform hat with a black plastic peaked brim. This navy blue hat is round with a flat top and the initials "FOI" in beige letters. Inside the "O" is a crescent moon with a star between its horns. The hat's sweat band is brown leather pierced with a repetitive row of square perforations. There is a diamond shaped label sewn into the underside of the top; it is covered by a white square of paper with the handwritten name "Jon D Ali." There are two small ventilation holes on each side of the hat.
A masonic apron from the Prince Hall Grand Lodge of Massachusetts. The apron is composed of a front piece (2013.71.1a) and two ties (2013.71.1bc). The front of the apron is likely silk and constructed from two pieces sewn together along the top edge. Both have a white central field with blue borders. The main piece is a rough square featuring a compass and sun painted in gold. The upper piece is an isosceles triangle coming to a point 6 3/4" from the top of the apron. It features a gold painted illustration of an eye in the middle of a radiating design. The apron is backed with undecorated cotton or linen, which is discolored and stained. The two detached ribbon ties are blue and likely made of silk.
