Islam and the Blackamerican

Peace, one and all…

I have just finished reading Sherman Jackson’s book, Islam and the Blackamerican: Looking Towards the Third Resurrection.  Like any good book, this one will take time to digest properly.  That said, I have to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed it – for a number of reasons.  Firstly, it was both well written and strongly argued.  Secondly, it was written by someone clearly prepared to wrestle with difficult issues.  Thirdly, it had a number of very interesting things to say regarding religion, culture and the creative use of tradition.  Although I read it without a clear purpose, it will certainly play an important role in shaping my own thinking in this area.

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
