Sohail Daulatzai's Black Star, Crescent Moon: The Muslim International and PDF

By Sohail Daulatzai

“The related uprising, a similar impatience, an analogous anger that exists within the hearts of the darkish humans in Africa and Asia,” Malcolm X declared in a 1962 speech, “is latest within the hearts and minds of 20 million black humans during this state who've been simply as completely colonized because the humans in Africa and Asia.” 4 a long time later, the hip-hop artist Talib Kweli gave voice to the same Pan-African sentiment within the tune “K.O.S. (Determination)”: “The African diaspora represents power in numbers, a huge cannot shut eye forever.”

Linking discontent and unrest in Harlem and l. a. to anticolonial revolution in Algeria, Egypt, and in other places, Black leaders within the usa have often seemed to the anti-imperialist hobbies and antiracist rhetoric of the Muslim 3rd international for notion. In Black megastar, Crescent Moon, Sohail Daulatzai maps the wealthy, shared background among Black Muslims, Black radicals, and the Muslim 3rd international, displaying how Black artists and activists imagined themselves no longer as nationwide minorities yet as a part of an international majority, attached to greater groups of resistance. Daulatzai lines those interactions and alliances from the Civil Rights stream and the Black energy period to the “War on Terror,” putting them inside a broader framework of yank imperialism, Black identification, and the worldwide nature of white oppression.

From Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali to modern artists and activists like Rakim and Mos Def, Black megastar, Crescent Moon finds how Muslim resistance to imperialism got here to occupy a critical place in the Black radical mind's eye, providing a brand new viewpoint at the political and cultural background of Black internationalism from the Fifties to the current.
