This chapter examines various smaller Islamic sects and lesser-known figures from the 1930s and early 1940s. These groups usually had ties to both black nationalism and the earlier Islamic movements, and one—the Ahmadiyya movement—had initially formed in the early 1920s. The factors contributing to the rise and fall of the Ahmadiyya groups; the Fahamme community; and the various organizations connected to Satokata Takahashi, Muhammad Yusuf Khan, and Sufi Abdul Hamid are presented to highlight the commonalities between the Islamic currents of the period.
