Description
From political leaders and human rights activists to rap musicians and sports figures, this collection profiles 50 male and 50 female Muslims and documents their contributions to a variety of fields and professions. A colorful counterpoint to the stereotypes of religious fundamentalists and suicide bombers, Natana DeLong-Bas portrays the lives and accomplishments of such well-known figures as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Mos Def, Muhammad Ali, and Yusuf Islam (the former Cat Stevens). Here too are biographies of Nawal El Moutawakel-Bennis, the first Muslim woman to win an Olympic gold medal; award-winning architect Hassan Fathy; H.R.H. Princess Haifa Al Faisal, the youngest child of Saudi Arabia's third monarch, King Faisal; and Mohamed Zakariya, the only American master Islamic calligrapher.
