Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Director of Hutchins Center for African & African American Research & Alphonse Fletcher University Professor, Harvard University:

 

"Precious Rasheeda Muhammad is a first-rate scholar who has quickly established herself as an authority on the history of Islam in America, especially with regard to the African American community. At Harvard, she worked tirelessly with the Department of African and African American Studies and the W. E. B. Du Bois Institute for African and African American Research to organize film series, exhibitions, and conferences on American Islam. A researcher who recovered a major autobiographical text and a natural teacher, Precious Muhammad is a rising star in a field which will only grow more important in the 21st century."
