“Moorish Chief”, Eduard Charlemont, Austrian, 1848–1906

From 711A.D. began an increased European connection to other parts of the African / Islamic World — The Moorish Empire.

Few are familiar with Moorish history and far too many of them have misconceived notions of who we (The Moors) truly are.

Even more so, most people are completely unaware of our existence and the unquantifiable impact we’ve had on the advancement of the human race.

In case you’ve forgotten (or haven’t been exposed to this history), here are a few portraits of Moors:
