A People’s History of Muslims in the United States

A People’s History of Muslims in the United States | Culturally Teaching | Scoop.it
What school textbooks and the media miss by Alison Kysia When I teach history related to Islam or Muslims in the United States, I begin by asking students what names they associate with these terms. The list is consistent year after year: Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad, and Muhammad Ali. All of these individuals have affected U.S. history in significant ways. If we take a step back and look at the messages these figures communicate about Muslims in U.S. history, we see a story dominated by men and by the Nation of Islam. Although important, focusing solely on these stories leaves us with a skewed view of Muslims in U.S. history. Even these examples are a stretch. Most of my students reference 9/11 as the first time they heard of Muslims.

Andrew Nayyar's curator insight, February 20, 9:09 PM

Very great history on the Nubian empires rises and falls. This article wastes no time and paints a picture of what the Nubian people endured. Before reading this article I did not know that Nub meant gold in Egyptian and all of Egypts wealth came from the Kush mountains. This artcile emphasizes the word "black pharaohs" rather than just saying Pharoah. I would guess that all of the Pharaohs would share a similar skin tone. This article also gives some great background on why there are more pyramids in Sudan than Egypt.

A Hundred Years after the 1913 Land Act

A Hundred Years after the 1913 Land Act | Culturally Teaching | Scoop.it
In the famous opening lines of his, Native Life in South Africa, Sol Plaatje wrote, "Awakening on Friday morning, June 20, 1913, the South African Native found himself, not actually a slave, but a pariah in the land of his birth". It was the colonial wars of the previous century that had left Africans with only 7% of the land in the new Union of South Africa, but it was the Land Act of 1913 that entrenched land dispossession by preventing Africans from buying or renting land from whites. It became a legal cornerstone of the segregationist project.
