Nationality Card for Moorish-American Moslems


This is the Nationality Card for members of the Moorish Science Temple of America. Membership is free all over the world. In reference to the card, Former Grand Sheik of the MST of A, Bro. R. Love-El wrote “There is no such ceremony known as “Nationalization”, and a member is not required to learn anything before he or she is entitled to receive their card. The Prophet did not require this, and it is not the practice of the Moorish Science Temple of America, and this practice should be stopped, where anyone is required to learn anything before receiving their card”.

Oscar Stanton De Priest


Oscar Stanton De Priest (March 9, 1871 – May 12, 1951) was an American lawmaker, who served as a U.S. Representative from Illinois from 1929 to 1935. He was the first so-called “African American” to be elected to Congress in the 20th century. De Priest was born in Florence, Alabama to former slaves. Noble Drew Ali was a supporter of Oscar Depriest and helped him get elected by Moorish-American’s during a time in America, when so-called “African-American’s” were not allowed to vote. Noble Drew Ali encouraged the Moors to cast their “free national ballot” and elect Depriest, among others.


Mecca, Indiana


Mecca is a town in Wabash Township, Parke County, Indiana, United States. The population was 335 at the 2010 census. The town was mapped in 1890 and it is unknown how this town got it’s name although there are two stories:
1.An immigration of Syrian Moslems led to a settlement among the white sands and clay banks of the Big Raccoon. The settlement became known as Little Arabia or Arabia. The Arabian Church and the Arabian Cemetery were located on top of the hill, south of the Philips or Arabian Covered Bridge.
2.”Arabians” was a name for second class citizens thought of as scoundrels and cattle thieves.
In either case the Arabians made trips to the larger town with a mill and stores that became known as pilgrimages. The name came from the expression, “There goes another caravan of Arabs on their way to Mecca!”
