Robert Redd is an archivist, with a personal collection of historic items dating from the early decades of the Muslim African American experience in the United States.  He participated in the first historic Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca) led by Imam W. Deen Mohammed in 1977.  That event was the largest delegation of Muslim African Americans to visit Mecca.

His research is revisiting that historic event to ensure it is documented in all of its dimensions and appropriately recorded in the historical record.
