Dr. Edward Curtis on Muslim American Dissent

In a January 18, 2012 talk for the Danforth Center at the University of Washington, Indiana University Professor Edward Curtis IV discussed Muslim American dissent before and after 9/11, focusing on the fascinating and little-known history of African American communities. He notes that, following WWII, “African American Islam became what was likely the greatest source of resistance–or at least symbol of resistance more generally–to U.S. foreign policy in the developing world, especially in Vietnam.”

The full lecture is available from the Danforth Center here.
