After Malcolm - Islam and the Black Freedom Struggle
The After Malcolm Research Collective documents African American Muslim contributions to the struggle for justice in the United States. Much more than Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali, this is a story of race, religion, and reconciliation central to American history. The lives and lessons captured here provide valuable lessons to help overcome social and political divisions today.
