ISLAM & THE PROBLEM OF BLACK SUFFERING
Date(s): Sunday 1/17/2010
Instructor: Dr.Sherman Abdul-Hakim Jackson
Time: 9:00 - 10:30 AM (PST - USA); 12:00-1:30 pm (EST - USA)
In this one day session, Dr. Sherman Abdul-Hakim Jackson aims to acquaint students with the import of his latest work, "Islam & The Problem of Black Suffering". One of the main problems confronting the black community is not simply proving that God exists, says Jackson. The problem, rather, is establishing that God cares. No religious expression that fails to tackle the problem of black suffering can hope to enjoy a durable tenure in the black community. Therefore, it is essential to find a Quranic/Islamic grounding for the protest-oriented agenda of black religion. That is the task Dr Abdul-Hakim Jackson undertakes in his path breaking work and in this unique webinar!
Dr.Sherman Jackson is an internationally recognized scholar of Islamic law and theology. He is Arthur Thurnau Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies, Visiting Professor of Law and Professor of Afro-American Studies at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor
