The people known as Moors today are an offshoot of the Berber people, a native population of north Africa, especially around the Atlas mountains. When Arabs conquered North Africa in the 7th and 8th centuries, one of the first people to convert were the white Berbers, who helped the Arabs in their spread of Islam, conquering the Iberian Peninsula, Southern France and Italy and the island of Sicily.Robert Sepehr is an author, producer, and anthropologist.
