Centering Black Narrative dramatically corrects this erroneous narrative, for example on p37 Imam Ali bin Abi Talib (ra) is shown to have been described as "extremely dark (adam shahid al-udmah)" complexion, which other works have shown was the exact same complexion description of Bilal ibn Rabah (ra)
Given the current political climate (February 2017) in this era of the Trump anti-Muslim banning agenda and with tensions between Arabized Levantine Arab business owners and inner-city African-American communities, this is a timely book which delves into the question of the intersectionality of "Muslim", "Blackness" and "Arabness" amongst the earliest Muslims including within Ahl al-Bayt (the family of the Prophet Muhammad)
Authors Ahmad Mubarak and Dawud Walid are to be commended on a well researched and thoroughly referenced work, which is at once beneficial to the scholar yet readable and accessible to laity and the general public. Ustadh Abdullah bin Hamid Ali's foreword lays the foundation and sets the scholarly yet unapologetic tone right from the onset...
While I wouldn't characterize it as an omission which hinders the book, yet the inclusion of the actual Arabic excerpts from the classic works would've made the work even more compelling.
