Invisible Yet Invincible: The Islamic Heritage of the Enslaved Africans in Jamaica / Sultana Afroz

Availability: Out of stock
Paperback 379 Pages Published 2012
£13.99

Writer Sultana Afroz uncovers the origins of a forgotten people of the Caribbean; the Maroons of Jamaica. She seeks to clarify the Islamic heritage of the Maroons and the position Islam played in the freeing of the enslaved Africans in Jamaica. Covering before and after the Emancipation Act of 1833, Afroz demonstrates how the Maroons never accepted the Christianity of their Masters, though outwardly may have appeared Christian. The prevalence of Islamic traditions retained in Jamaica denotes the continuing devotion to Islam which was a strong factor in their eventual emancipation. A well researched and reflective work by an acknowledged authority on Islam.
