Black Pilgrimage to Islam

Due to certain changes which the social order underwent after World War II ended, the Dar ul-Islam (DAR), the Mosque of Islamic Brotherhood (MIB), and the Islamic Party of North America (IPNA) adapted certain principles for Islamic revivalism that concerned political and religious thought. Although two of these new orthodox sects attempted to institute an Islamic din through the endeavors of the Uniting Islamic Society, they also headed its disbanding of such a movement due to issues of identity and autonomy. One of their shared interests that evoked their perception of modern conversion was popular music. Be-bop, which is rooted in the development of modern jazz, demonstrated how this genre was derived from music idioms of Africa and the Caribbean islands. This chapter illustrates how be-bop served as an aesthetic breakthrough that brought about unity among Africans and those who practiced the Muslim faith.
