Despite the immense influences that the Noble Drew Ali had on Black Nationalism and the black nationalistic movement in North America, we know little about him because the details of his life are sketchy and incomplete at best. As a result of this lack of information, the Noble Drew Ali remains one of the most mystifying figures in all of African American history. This monograph provides information not readily available to the general public, and explores most of the available documents on this mysterious person. The Noble Drew Ali was important because he redefined blackness based on identification with the Moors. His ideas and philosophy have contributed to and made possible the rise of black Messianic figures such as Father Divine, Sweet daddy Grace and many others.
