Assalaama alaikum brother Tierno,
Inshallah, this letter reaches you and your family in good spirits. My name is Arif Jamal. I am a African American who has always been interested in West African Islamic history. Many African Muslims were brought to America during slavery, including some from Futa Jallon.
I have been researching such people for several years now. I am a librarian at the University of Pittsburgh. Your site is very well done and informative. I was browsing the internet some time ago and came across your site. I have been coming back from that time. We pray that you continue your site.
Ma salaama,
Arif Jamal
