Moorish-American Institute was founded by C.M. Bey in 1965. It was organized and headed under
the name of ‘Clock Of Destiny National Cultural Club’. Its doors were opened to students who sought
the teachings of Noble Drew Ali by C.M. Bey at 8916 Cedar Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio. C.M. Bey continued those
teachings from 1965 to 1969 at the above location. At that time Cleveland, Ohio was the only city where
the lessons of C.M. Bey were being taught.
After the establishment of Clock of Destiny National Cultural Club, C. M. Bey moved forward
to form another group. At one time there were as many as four (4) different organizations headed under
the Clock of Destiny National Cultural Club operating in the city of Cleveland. Even though C.M. Bey was
closely affiliated with James Johnson Bey in 1956, and considered him as a vital functioning entity for the distribution of
this knowledge, James Johnson Bey formed the now existing Moorish-American Institute in 1970, which was housed at 2844 Woodhill
Road, Cleveland, Ohio.

sciences that tend to aid humanity in understanding the universe which surrounds, and, is within us. When
the true Moorish history is known to the Asiatics, they will no longer have a reason to resent the Europeans.

Bey authored 'Clock of Destiny 1' and 'Clock of Destiny 2', a great humanitarian
treatise, which was filed in the Library of Congress, with obvious intent to be public material, and for preservation. He
also wrote 'Circle Of Life', wherein, one can do a personal chart based on the planetary energies
at one's birth, and the Zodiac Constitution, as well as 'Humanitarian Episodes Lessons'.
