Reader recommendation: Servants of Allah

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.


Servants of Allah by Sylviane A. Diouf has taught me so much about the many Muslims who were slaves in the Americas. I'm curious as to why it takes an international scholar and writer to provide this part of US history. I realize so much of this history is still missing the way it is currently being taught.
