Program 11: Islam in America: Black Islam     CD   MP3

     For most Americans the term 'Black Muslims' probably brings back memories of hot, violent summers in Detroit, Chicago or New York; and also of fear of militant Black nationalism, all somehow linked to Islam. In this program we're going to take a closer look at this 'Black Islam' and the various movements it nurtured

  -How does it differ from the orthodox Sunni Islam of the rest of the Muslim world?

 -Do Afro-American Muslims still breathe the  revolutionary doctrines of Black separatism?

        -Are White men still devils?

        -What has happened to the Nation of Islam since the death of its          leader Elijah Muhammad in 1975?

        -Where does Malcolm X fit in to the picture?
