Since 1913 there were Moorish American communities established in 62 U.S. Cities; in 27 States (includes the District of Columbia); and in 10 of the Ten Places With the Largest Number of Black or African Americans (see The Black Population: 2010 Census Briefs). There were an estimated 100,00-registered Moors nationwide at the time the first Moorish Science Temple of America National Convention was held at Chicago, Illinois in October 1928.
