Sat June 8, 2013 6pm at Housmans bookstore in kings cross central london, Brother Sohail Daulatzai will be in conversation with Sukant Chandan (Sons of Malcolm / sonsofmalcolm.com ) on the subject of Daulatzai’s newly published book: ‘Black Star, Crescent Moon: The Muslim International and Black Freedom Beyond America.’
Black Star is a book which documents and analyses the impact of the Muslim International, ie., the tradition of radical and popular resistance and liberation to western imperialism in the internationalist traditions of those inspired by Islam, from that of the Non-Aligned Movement, to the impact on the Nation of Islam and especially Malcolm X as well as Muhammad Ali, as well as the cultural impact manifested in Hip-Hop and Cinema.
The book encapsulates much of the impact of anti-imperialist and radical manifestations of Islam on radical organising in communities and in the cultural struggle in North America.
This is an event which especially interest activists, students and scholars of radical Black, Native and Asian movements in the usa and in the wider ‘western’ world and how they connect with the presence of anti-imperialist Muslims and other resistant-oppressed peoples of the Global South.
Sohail Daulatzai also co-edited with Michael E Dyson, Born to Use Mics: Reading Nas’s Illmatic and is Associate Professor at the African American Studies School of Humanities, University of California, Irvine. Read More:
