Temple Folk

$2695 $2895

"In Temple Folk, Black Muslims contemplate the convictions of their race, religion, economics, politics, and sexuality in America. The ten stories in this collection contribute to the bounty of diverse narratives about Black life by intimately portraying the experiences of a community that resists the mainstream culture to which they are expected to accept and aspire to while functioning within the country in which they are born. In Due North, an obedient daughter struggles to understand why she's haunted by the spirit of her recently deceased father. In Who's Down? a father, after a brief affair with vegetarianism, conspires with his daughter to order him a double cheeseburger. In Candy for Hanif a mother's routine trip to the store for her disabled son takes an unlikely turn when she reflects on a near-death experience. In Woman in Niqab, a daughter's suspicion of her father's infidelity prompts her to wear her hair in public. In New Mexico, a federal agent tasked with spying on a high-ranking member of the Nation of Islam grapples with his responsibilities closer to home." --Front jacket flap.
