Summary
"Can Islam help African Americans overcome the legacy of slavery and decades of racial oppression? How does the strict Islamic lifestyle accommodate mainstream American values? Will fiercely independent African American women yield to Islamic law? Why would African Americans fashion themselves into a "double minority" by converting to Islam?" "Questions such as these frame Black Pilgrimage to Islam, Robert Dannin's sweeping portrait of the African American Muslim community. Drawing extensively upon fifteen years of research, personal observations, rare documents, and the words of devout worshipers, Dannin provides a complete picture of the African American Muslim community. While members of the fringe Nation of Islam have drawn most of the media attention, they are far outnumbered by orthodox Muslims. Dannin introduces the reader to this previously ignored orthodox majority, its personalities, customs, and conflicts."--Jacket
