Places of Worship in the Mississippi Delta / Clarksdale, Mississippi
Al-Bayyinah Islamic Center

D. Gorton/2003
Mosques are still rare in the Delta, though I have run across them in hamlets like Jonesville. This one, located in a once thriving black commercial street in Clarksdale, is up for sale. We saw black men selling Muhammed Speaks, the Black Muslim newspaper, just a few blocks away. So, there appears to still be an organized Muslim Community in Clarksdale.
