This chapter outlines the history and development of the concept of the Muslim International by analyzing various political and cultural histories. It explores the history of Black Islam in the post-World War II era through the figure of Malcolm X and the ways in which the Muslim Third World became both a literal and an ideological backdrop to his unfolding narrative of resistance and internationalism. From Cairo to Harlem, Mecca to Bandung, Algiers to Palestine and beyond, the Muslim Third World played a central role in shaping Malcolm’s political vocabulary and grammar of resistance as he crafted an imaginative geography that connected Black liberation struggles in the United States of America to decolonization in Africa and the Muslim Third World.

Keywords:   Muslim International, Black Islam, Malcom X, Muslim Third World, internationalism, Black liberation, decolonization, resistance
