Al-Rida, the Afro-Arab:

His grandfather was Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq who was

secondarily married to an African

slave woman he had freed. The woman

later gave birth to Musa al-Kadhim, making him half

African. Al-Kadhim (the father of al-Rida) also married an African slave, making his offspring three quarters African.
