Muslims in Brooklyn Project Information:

In 2017, Brooklyn Historical Society (BHS) launched Muslims in Brooklyn, a two-year, multi-faceted public history project designed to amplify the stories of Brooklyn’s Muslim communities.

For well over a century, Muslims have lived, worked, and prayed in Brooklyn, making it a major center of Muslim life for New York City and the nation. As such, the histories and experiences of Brooklyn’s Muslim communities hold great resonance for national conversations on religious diversity and pluralism. Muslims in Brooklyn centers on the following three premises:

Muslims in Brooklyn have a long history. Muslim communities have been part of American life since before the nation's founding, and established Muslim communities have been in Brooklyn for well over a century.

Muslims in Brooklyn are a diverse people. The lives and work of Muslims in Brooklyn span many ethnicities, cultures, and nationalities.

Muslims in Brooklyn are Brooklynites. Muslims have both shaped and been shaped by life in Brooklyn.

The Muslims in Brooklyn project is made possible through the generous support of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art’s Building Bridges Program, the Ford Foundation, The New York Community Trust, the Nissan Foundation, the Pillars Fund, Pop Culture Collaborative, and New York City Council Members Robert E. Cornegy, Jr., Rafael Espinal, and Brad Lander.
