1933 - LEGISLATIVE JOURNAL - HOUSE -
RESOLUTION No. 75
Mr. WITKIN, Mr. Speaker, I desre at this time to call up Resolution No. 75, Printer's No. 1034.
The Resolution was read by the Clerk as follows:
In the House of Representatives, April 17, 1933, Many sons and daughters of that proud and handsome race which inspired the architecture of Northern Africa and carried into Spain the influence of its artistic temperaments have become citizens of this Nation.
In the City of Philadelphia there exists a Moorish-American Society made up of Moors who have found here the end of their quest for a home and of the children of those who journeyed here from the plains of Morocco.
This Society has done much to bring about a thorough absorption by these people of those principles which are necessary to make them good American citizens. These Moorish-Americans have since being here missed the use of the titles and name annexations that were so familiar at home and which are used in accordance with the doctrines of the religious faith to which they are adherents Therefore be it, Resolved That this House commends the Moorish-American Society of Philadelphia for the efficient service it has rendered the Nation in bringing about a speedy and thorough Americanization of these former Moors and that in accordance with the fullest right of religious independence guaranteed every citizen we recognize also the right of these people to use the name affixes El or Ali or Bey or any other prefix or suffix to which they have heretofore been accustomed to use or which they may hereafter acquire the right to use.
On the question, Will the House Adopt the resolution?
It was Adopted May 4, 1933.
COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF PHILADELPHIA
ROOM 402, CITY HALL
Honoring the Moorish – American Society of Philadelphia
Whereas, The Moorish – American Society of Philadelphia is a thriving vital community made up of Moors who have sought a better life and brighter future for their children as they journeyed here from the plains of Morocco, and
Whereas, The Moorish – American community has readily adopted the principles of freedom and democracy so necessary for their assimilation into the larger family of Americans from all manner of ethnic, religious, cultural and racial backgrounds; and
Whereas, These Americans, who hail from a proud and ancient culture whose influence in philosophy, architecture and the arts has helped define North African culture for centuries, have become productive, involved, and contributing members of the American system, yet loyal to the doctrines of the religious faith to which they are adherents; and
Whereas, The Moorish – American community recognizes assimilation as fundamental to becoming full Americans, yet also seeks to maintain the flavor of their cultural roots by the use of Titles, prefixes, and suffixes which have been the custom within this dynamic culture for centuries; therefore
Resolved, by the Council of the City of Philadelphia, That we hereby recognize the rich, artistic and creative aspects of this unique community. We give full allegiance to those constitutional guarantees of religious independence which will enable citizens of Moorish descent to carry on those traditions so vital to the definition of their presence as a people by the use of the names affixes, El or Ali or Bey, and that this recognition is accompanied by the highest respect for the Moorish people and their culture.
Resolved, That an Engrossed copy of the Resolution be presented to Representatives of the Moorish – American community as evidence of the profound respect and sincere admiration for the contributions made to this city by Moorish – Americans.
