About the Author

Keith L Moore was born in 1973, and raised in the city of Chicago, Illinois. He received his B.S. in Education in 1999 from DePaul University, Il and his M.A. in Inner City Studies Education from Northeastern Illinois University in 2005. Currently he isworking towards a second masters degree majoring in Education at the National College of Education. Since 1992, Mr. Moore's primary research interest has been the study of freemasonry and it's connection to what he defines as the African Moorish science experience. This exposure gave rise to formation of eastern religions and cultures among blacks in the western hemisphere namely North America. In 1994 he was initiated, passed, and raised to the degree of Master Mason and in 1999 to the 32nd degree of Freemasonry. Mr. Moore has always had a fascination with what he defines as the various studies into the esoteric sides of religions .Mr. Moore is a educator, researcher and member of several Masonic and afro centric research societies. Currently Mr. Moore is conducting research on the negro shriners order and their influences on the Islamic faith among blacks in America.

Format: Paperback
This book is great and informative many members of the Moorish Science temple should read this book. It is one of the most honest approaches to what Noble Drew Ali did and how the moorish movement came about. This author goes into the esoteric foundations of the MSTA. I sugest this book along with Timothy Myers EL Sacred Muur science and Zachary Gremillions book African Origins of Freemasonry.

Format: Paperback
This book is based on the theory that the black Muslim movement was created from the knowledge of the Masonic order. In the early decades of the 20th century, noble drew ali established a political and religious organization known today as the Moorish Science Temple of America. It was this organization that exposed black to something other than the normal Christian influences of that day. Ali a high degree freemason, incorporated various Masonic teachings from an auxiliary group. Known as the AEAONMS ancient Egyptian Arabic order of noble of the mystic shrine A pseudo Islamic/Arabic oriental organization that served as a wake up call to a lost knowledge. A knowledge that was taken away from Africans during the slave trades. The theory behind this book is that the majority of the slaves that were taken from the west coast of Africa were practicing Muslims, and these Muslims were forced to convert to Christianity under the strong oppression of slavery. At one time Afro-Americans were the biggest minority in the American society. About 90% of the today's population of black's are descendants of slaves that were brought to America for working on plantations since the 16th century. At the beginning of the 19th century most of the so-called Negroes lived in the plantation areas of the Southern States. After the Civil War and the abolition of slavery it wasn't until the early 1920's and 30's that black's were beginning to experiment with other faiths. Of all the faiths Islam became the fastest growing religion and the most popular. This book by far is in no way a research into black history, instead it covers a more deeper aspect of history in which I call the history behind the history. It explores the true Asiatic origins of the ancient religions of Hinduism, Buddhism well as the Islamic faith.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
I havn't read this book ... But, I would like to comment on a few reviews. For one, just because we can see the evidence of Africans through out the world in different era's, does not mean that all practice the same beliefs or traditions. Noting: that the khametans were not muslims because the moabites may have been. Although both groups were the same in hue and probably shared some distant kinship in view of family clans... there is a big difference in the belief systems of the Khametan spiritual system and that of Islam. For one, the Khametan's acknowledged the female principle as being equal to the male principle, as being the progenitor of the latter. In Islam, Allet which was the female opposite of Allah had been given a back seat doing the time of Mohammad, wether it was his decision or someone in his camp at a later time matters not, considering that the Mohammadans were patriarchs, as it was doing the time of the Mohammadans when Islam was said to be born. If Mohammad was the establisher of Islam doing the 7th century, then there was no Islamic religion predating his time. There is evidence to show that the Arabs had a spiritual practice, but there is no evidence of it being a (organized religion) before the arrival of Mohammad. If so, then were is the evidence?

It wasn't until after Mohammad's death that the Islamic religion was used as a weapon against Afrikans and others in the so-called Middle East. There is no evidence that I have seen, that suggestes are shows that the Moors were practicing Islam before the time of Mohammad.

Format: Paperback
The information presented in the book is design to give the reader an in dept understanding of moorish science origins as well as freemasonry's connection to other black nationalist movements. it seems that the majority of these groups tend to neglect and even deny their connection to freemasonry simply because in their own beliefs their doctrines are made to believe that they are of an orginal origin. these groups have borrowed from other religions to create their own new age beliefs and in turn needed something to create structure within their new found faith. they used freemasonry as a tool for organizing their movements because their are quite a few members in the order and they needed a structure that would give them organization. once the movement was established they abandoned masonic teachings and renamed it something different.However what i found within these groups is the fact that they still have not abandoned freemasonry it is still present within their ranks and their religious doctrines,and that is fine because i believe without it the organization would not exist.For a number i have seen
many people talk against freemasonry because of its history in world dealings. however if one would have a better understanding of freemasonry's true origins then and only then could these movements have a better appreciation of what freemasonry really is. first and foremost it was never called freemasonry. it is a system that has borrowed from other ancient systems mainly africa nile valley ,ancient ethiopia etc.
Great writers of black nationalism like martin delaney a prince hall mason have spoken highly of freemasonry delaney quoted the phrase
"But to deny to black men the privileges of Masonry, is to deny to a child the lineage of its own parentage.
