  2. Well, I’ve completed my fourth re-read of Dr. Jackson’s book, Islam and the Blackamerican. It continues to inform and inspire. I highly recommend this book as a read/re-read. For those who have read it, his notes are quite extensive. I myself have begun to delve into his sources and would encourage any other reader to do so as well.
