Strategies for Change

This committee’s mandate is one of candid, intensive introspection and critical analysis resulting in Strategies which effectively move our Moorish community forward. Critical Thinking skills, Creativity, Innovative Thinking, Flexibility, Future-NOW ‘vision’ are a few of the “tools” needed for success. What must we do NOW to better position ourselves and how do we go about it? Where might we be in 20 years and how do we design our path there? Committee members must be “forward-thinkers” as we focus on our growth and development from Organization to recognized Nation-State to Autonomy. This committee corresponds with all MANR Departments.



“In connection with our religious aims and beliefs, we must promote economic security. The preaching of economic security among us is by no means as widespread and intensive as the circumstance demand. No other one thing is more needed among us at this time than greater economic power. Better positions for our men and women, more business employment for our boys and girls and bigger income will follow our economic security. We shall be secure in nothing until we have economic power. A beggar people cannot develop the highest in them, nor can they attain to a genuine enjoyment of the spiritualities of life.” – Prophet Noble Drew Ali excerpted from an article in the Moorish Literature known as “Moorish Leader’s Historical Message To America”

Law & Legal Research

In accordance with Acts 1, 4, 5 and 6 of our DIVINE CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS, The LAW COMMITTEE is tasked with helping our Movement negotiate the subject of Constitutional laws, etc. as they truly relate to our people, i.e. so-called ‘negro black, colored & african-american’ whose ancestors were held as slaves and who are “descendants” of the Ancient Moabite inhabitants of the Americas. As stated by Prophet Noble Drew Ali in the MOORISH LITERATURE article “Divine Warning to the Nations…” (and we paraphrase) “we must repent from our sinful ways and go back to that state of mind of our forefathers’ Divine & National Principles that we will be law abiding and receive our divine rights as citizens according to the Free National Constitution that was prepared for all free National beings”- (end paraphrase). Law is specific and so we must inner-stand the laws and/or statutes currently in use in order to properly defend ourselves in lawful and legal venues. Peace on earth and good will to man can only be achieved when every womb-man knows the laws governing him. Every Nation has laws which govern it; we, the Moorish-Americans, must know the laws which govern us. Therefore, among other areas, this COMMITTEE functions to:
