Hello everybody,

I'm reading The Golden Age of the Moor (Ivan Van Sertima) and right at the beggining he said this:
"The Muslim brought millions of Europeans over the North African ports of Sale, Tangier, Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli, Fez and Marrakesh and some of the northen Egyptian towns. One very famous Sultan, Mulai Ismail of Meknes, in Morocco, had as many as 25.000 European slaves. (...)"

So the Moors were the first to enslave people by the color of the skin? Or they just enslaved Blacks and Arabs as well?

peace

Did you know anything about the Moors before you began reading Dr. Van Sertimas work?

Do you know what the european christians were up to, or doing at that time?

And your title has MOORS in it, but in your post you are asking about MUSLIMS? So, i'm not sure if you are referring to Moors as Arabs?

Also note, that at that time european so called nobles would hold big festivals and Europeans would dress up as moors and do all types of un-godly things to spread negative Moorish propaganda....

So again, if this is the first time you've read up on the Moors, i suggest you keep reading that book and several others. As it seems you want to play the "tit for tat' game. " If blacks enslaved whites, then why are blacks mad at white people for enslaving them type of thing...." :wink:

Happy reading...

What is the time period of this 'golden age' and does it precede the East Afrikan Slave Trade?
It is the invasion of the Iberian Peninsula by the Moors of North Africa. From 711-1492. I know nothing about the East African Slave Trade. peace
