Dr. John Henrik Clarke / Lecture on the political and spiritual history of African Christianity and Islam
I do not know if Dr. Clarke titled this lecture "The Rise of Islam", as stated in the video. If he did, he underestimated himself because this lecture broadly covers the entire gamut of African spirituality from Old Kingdom Classical Africa to the Nation of Islam.
Quite relevant this week, in light of new media sensation, Nigeria's Boko Haram. Michael Amoah speaks to Al Jazeera about that from London:
