2/16/14 Black History Hero: Nobel Drew Ali


The Moorish Science Temple of America is an American organization founded in the early 20th-century by Timothy Drew a.k.a Nobel Drew Ali. He claimed it was a sect of Islam but he drew as well from Buddhism, Christianity, Freemasonry, Gnosticism and Taoism. Its primary tenet was the theory that there was a Negroid-looking population of aboriginals which existed prior to the Transatlantic Slave Trade that was subsequently confused with African people.
