Event description

Description

Since its inception, hip hop has drawn inspiration from Muslim communities throughout NYC, including the Nation of Islam, Nation of Gods and Earths (“Five Percenters”), Ansaaru Allah Community, and Sunni Muslims. Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Director Wes Jackson sits down with author of Muslim Cool: Race, Religion, and Hip Hop in the United States Su’ad Abdul Khabeer, and former Editor-in-Chief of The Source Magazine Fahiym Abdul-Wasi to explore the history and contemporary resonance of Islam in hip hop.

Presented in partnership with the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, and in connection with BHS’s Muslims in Brooklyn project.
