The Moors were the medieval Muslim inhabitants of Morocco, western Algeria, Western Sahara, Mauritania, the Iberian Peninsula, Septimania, Sicily and Malta. In the languages of Europe, a number of associated ethnic groups have been historically designated as "Moors". In modern Iberia, the term is applied to people of Moroccan ethnicity. "Moor" is sometimes colloquially applied to any person from North Africa, but some people consider this usage of the term pejorative, especially its Spanish version "moro". Part II is a continuation of the Moorish story from the fall of the Umayyad Dynasty to the fall of Granada. We continue the connection between certain New Mexican families and the Moors. Another film will be shown that will trace the Moorish history and its impact on the Iberian Peninsula. We will also discuss which families show the markers that are most identified with this ancient civilization.
