Islam: Africa to America (DVD)
July 20, 2006 § 3 Comments
I recently purchased “Islam: Africa to America”, a DVD from Al-Hambra Productions, written and directed by Zahir Ahmed. It is a documentary about Muslim Slaves and their story as they went from the heights of social development and scholasticism to the terrible catastrophe of slavery in America. This great effort to tell the untold or little known stories of Muslims in America traces reliable sources to account for practicing Muslim families struggling against brutal pressure from the hand of their oppressors to rob them of their religion, dignity and self-identity.
The film is narrated by Steve Boergadine and is a testament to the deep connection that the descendants of African Slaves in America have to Islam. A must see for anyone but especially African-Americans.
