"This publication marks the beginning of an exciting and intellectually rewarding process leading to an understanding of the role of African American congregations and religious leaders in their attempt to make religious life meaningful. The need to examine the various means by which the government has attempted to forge an image of the religious life of African Americans is a timely exercise. EXPOSED!!! provides the reader with excerpts of the documentation found in FBI files for the years 1918 to 1971."
Wardell J. Payne, Ph.D., Research Director,
Howard University School of Divinity,
Research Center on Black Religious Bodies

"This compilation of secret government documents provides surprising new information on such little known but important American and African-American religious figures as Sufi Abdul Hamid and Joseph Samuel Croom. The book greatly facilitates the work of the historian of black religion."
Richard Newman,
Former Manager of Publications, The New York Public Library
