On November 3rd-5th, Moors gathered at the Paul Quinn College for the purpose of “Uplifting Fallen Humanity.” There were roughly seventy to eighty participants throughout the weekend whom all desired to see Asiatics unite and prepare a prosperous future for themselves. At the confenfence, the following organizations were present:
- Moorish Holy Temple of Science (California)
- Moorish Science Temple (Texas)
- Moorish Science Temple (South Carolina)
- Moorish Science Temple (Baltimore)
- The League of Moorish and Indigenous Nations
- Amexem Moor Empire (Brief Appearance)
- United Nation of Islam (Kansas City)
It was a beautiful experience as deligates came from California, Oklahoma, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Baltimore. It was also great to see college students attending as two enterprising young Moorish students from Langston University, Justin Cochran and Steven Morris Bey, were active participants and witnesses of the foward progression of “Unity.” They traveled from Oklahoma to attend the conference and gain valuable knowledge and insight regarding the “Moorish Divine and National Movement.” Steven Morris Bey reported that he became more motivated about Moorish History and Moorish Science after reading “The Biography of Noble Drew Ali: The Exhuming of a Nation” by Elihu Pleasant Bey. Steven Morris Bey also disclosed that he has encouraged his collegiate peers to read the book as he felt it was a wholistic view of the Moorish Movement in North America.
Also in attendance was Grand Sheik: Jaamiah Moori Bey. He informed the congregates of the positive work that was being done in California. He discussed his plans for their new building and his plans to strengthen Moorish activity in his area.
The weekend was refreshed as the theology professor from Paul Quinn College, who just so happened to be discussing the Moorish Movement in his class, invited Zothyrius Ali El and Yahushua El Yahuda Bey to address the class regarding the Moors, Noble Drew Ali, the Moorish Science Temple and the Moor’s current activities. The presentation was so dynamic that many students decided to attend the conference after their class concluded.
As the weekend concluded, it grew more interesting as Grand Shiek: Maat Spirit El Bey introduced the congregates to Grand Sheik: Ronnie Johnson Bey whom recently purchased a ranch in Texas that appraised for 1.5 million dollars. However, before the Moors left the conference center for a tour of the ranch, several students of Noble Drew Ali met with students of the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. This was an historic event as the following met for the “Uniting of Asia”: Grand Sheik: Maat Spirit El Bey (LMIN), Grand Sheik: Jaamiah Moori Bey, Grand Sheik: Zothyrius Ali El (LMIN), Grand Sheik: Ronnie Johnson Bey, Moorish Matriarch/Empress: Zaafirah El Bey (LMIN), National Representative: Elihu Pleasant Bey (LMIN), Royall Allah (UNOI), National Secretary: Adam Winthrop (UNOI), and Yahushua El Yahuda Bey (Security/Mufti) and Osar Ra El (Security/Mufti). The meeting went well as a bond for “Peace” and “Unity” was established along with discussions regarding plans for future meetings and agreements.
To concluded the weekend, Moors visited the “Circle Seven Ranch” operated and owned by Grand Sheik: Ronnie Johnson Bey. The ranch was a grand site as Moors toured the property and discussed the future of the ranch.
Also, the weekend was solidified with a visit to Bro. Takuma Umoja’s bookstore. His bookstore of was reminiscent of the old African bookstores from the past. His bookstore was well stocked with a diverse collection of literature. It is strongly suggested that you contact him at 817-536-8414 regarding his merchandise. He’s a pleasant and knowledgable man with a lot of positive insight regarding Asiatic stuggles in North America as well as South America as he is a native of Guiana.
