African American and Middle Eastern coalition through Islam

Aga, Tia Cazna; Smith, Raymond Arthur

As African American and Middle Eastern peoples established and developed their communities in America, there was much tension between them. However, there has been a movement of coalition between the two groups, as they have both been perceived of as villains, but even more so, sharing in a common religion – Islam. This issue brief explores the tensions and successes of developing a coalition between the two groups, with Islam being a major unifying factor.
