Representing for the Black American Muslim
A salaam is a greeting of peace that Muslims offer each other usually by one saying, "Assalaamu alaikum," and another responding, "Wa'alaikum assalaam." A dap is a greeting of peace that Black Americans often give one another in the form of a hand slap, shake or pound, sometimes accompanied by a hug. I put the two terms together to represent, and welcome you into, the two worlds from which I've sprung: African American and Muslim. Peace (be unto you)!
