Event Details

Heralding from over 20 countries, Muslims in New York City represent a diverse, multi-faceted religious community, yet they are frequently reduced to stereotypes in popular media. Join us for a panel presentation and discussion about the long history of Islam in America with Sylviane Diouf, author of Servants of Allah: African Muslims Enslaved in the AmericasMoustafa Bayoumi, author of How Does It Feel To Be a Problem? Being Young and Arab in America.; Ousmane Kane, author of The Homeland is the Arena: Religion, Transnationalism, and the Integration of Senegalese Immigrants in America; and Terna Tilley-Gyado, writer and co-producer of Coming Out Muslim - a multi-genre storytelling performance about the lives of queer Muslims. 

This event is part of Crossing Borders, Bridging Generations, an oral history and public programming series that explores the history and experiences of mixed-race people and families in Brooklyn.

Halal dinner will be served at this event.

Brooklyn Historical Society

Founded in 1863, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) functions as a library, museum, and urban education center dedicated to the people of Brooklyn, providing opportunities for civic dialogue and thoughtful engagement. Each year, 70,000 students and teachers use our innovative programs and resources to learn about American History and scholars conduct important academic research in our Library and Archives. Through partnerships with government and community groups, BHS reaches communities throughout New York City, serving as a hub for information and ideas about Brooklyn and its complex history.

Housed in a magnificent Landmark Building in Brooklyn Heights, designed by George Post in 1878, BHS maintains an important collection of historical manuscripts, books, photographs, maps, paintings, objects, and ephemera dating back to the 17th century. BHS is a long-standing yet modern institution in both outlook and action. We are Brooklyn’s preeminent history center, responsible for preserving and presenting Brooklyn’s history; our collection continues to grow through the acquisition of contemporary and historical works of art, photographs, documents, books, and oral histories.
