Event description

Description

Muslims have lived, worked, and prayed in NYC for well over a century, establishing it as a major center of Muslim American life and culture. BHS Oral Historian and Muslims in Brooklyn Project Director Zaheer Ali, author of Being Muslim: A Cultural History of Women of Color in American Islam Sylvia Chan-Malik, and Principal Investigator for the Institute of Social Policy and Understanding’s Muslims for American Progress (MAP)-NYC project Elisabeth Becker share their research on this rich heritage, and consider the ways contemporary Muslim American experiences reflect and refract that history.

Presented in partnership with the Institute of Social Policy and Understanding’s Muslims for American Progress (MAP)-NYC project, and in connection with BHS’s "Muslims in Brooklyn" project.
