"Moor" is a term used in Medieval Europe. A moor is a Muslim from Africa. Most moors were from northern Africa (Morroco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya & Egypt) and were olive-skinned with Mediterranean or Coptic features. Many moors were dark-skinned with African features.
The term "Moor" is no longer in use. The only modern use I can think of is in the play "Othello."
