Islam and the Blackamerican

This chapter examines the historical relation between African Americans, immigrant Islam and the dominant culture in the U.S. during the 20th century. It describes African African Muslim thought during the Third Resurrection as a prescriptive ideal, and attempts to reconcile blackness, Americanness and adherence to Islam. It contends that it was not Islam but certain oversights and obsessions of Black and especially Post-Colonial Religion that impeded the African American Muslim's ability to come to terms with America.

Keywords:   African American Muslims, immigrant Islam, Third Resurrection, blackness, Americanness, Black Religion, religious history, U.S
