I was alerted by a Sudanese colleague here in the Sultanate of Oman to an Arabic article in Al Arabiya about my research on Malcolm X in Sudan. While doing research for my academic journal article “X Marks the Spot: Mapping Malcolm’s Encounters with Sudan,” which was published in a special issue of the Journal of Africana Religions (The Meaning of Malcolm X for Africana Religions: Fifty Years On), I had the opportunity to literally follow in Malcolm’s footsteps in Sudan with his old Sudanese friends in Khartoum. I’m delighted to see this interest in my work about this fascinating chapter of American, Middle Eastern, and African history.
