duse muhammad ali

From time to time, I've looked online for good info on Duse Muhammad Ali but it wasn't until recently that I found an article worth linking to: Early American Islam: “Duse Muhammad Ali” and the “Universal Islamic Society” from Hood's Islamic Law etc. blog. For those who do not know, Duse Muhammad Ali was an early Pan-African Muslim (Egyptian/ Sudanese background) who influenced and inspired Marcus Garvey. Personally, I think Duse Muhammad is interesting because he stands out as an influential Muslim of African-descent in the West during the period after slavery but before the Moorish Science movement.

"Black Crescent: The Experience and Legacy of African Muslims in the Americas" by Michael A. Gomez contains a short but interesting discussion of Duse Mohamed Ali on pages 259-260, and footnotes 110-112. Dr. Gomez cites the Ph.D dissertaion of Ian Duffield "Duse Mohammed Ali and the Development of Pan-Africanism, 1866-1945" (Edinburgh U., 1971) as the primary source for his discussion.
