In Black Star, Crescent Moon, Sohail Daulatzai maps the rich, shared history between Black Muslims, Black radicals, and the Muslim Third World, showing how Black artists and activists imagined themselves not as national minorities but as part of a global majority, connected to larger communities of resistance. Daulatzai traces these interactions and alliances from the Civil Rights movement and the Black Power era to the "War on Terror," placing them within a broader framework of American imperialism, Black identity, and the global nature of white oppression.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Sohail Daulatzai's "Black Star, Crescent Moon" is a pathbreaking, genre-shattering work of breathtaking scholarship.

"
""Black Star, Crescent Moon" is a tour de force that has restored my faith in cultural studies. The book is a stunning achievement and Daulatzai reveals an intellectual virtuosity and originality few can match. His formulation of a Muslim International alone compels us to rethink Muslim Third World opposition and its relationship to the black freedom struggle." Robin D. G. Kelley

"Timely and provocative, this globe-trotting book takes you down an almost forgotten road of Black freedom: the one that connects the struggles of the burning ghettos of America to the rage against imperial power in Muslim lands. Shining light on the artists and activists who helped pave that road, Black Star, Crescent Moon vividly shows that Black freedom struggles, whether through art or politics, are always global in scope. Written with an urgency that our times demand, my man Sohail does what we in hip-hop have been doing for decades: uncovering histories, drawing connections, and trying to make people move. Rebel reading for right now!" --Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def)
