Muslims in New York City: Lessons from the Past, Visions for the Future

June 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Muslims have lived, worked, and prayed in New York City for well over a century, establishing it as a major center of Muslim American life and culture. Brooklyn Historical Society 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 ISPU’s Muslims for American Progress–NYC project Elisabeth Becker share their research on this rich heritage, and consider the ways contemporary Muslim American experiences reflect and refract that history.

Registration is free with the promo code ISPU.
