Take a spring semester course that includes a week of travel to NYC on spring break!
— FROM ROOTS TO RAP: ISLAM IN AMERICA —
Course: HIS 195 – fulfills a Humanities requirement
Program Leader: professor Maheen Zaman
Travel Dates: March 12-19, 2021
We will walk in the footsteps of Malcolm X on our tour of Muslim Harlem as we study the vast diversity of Black Muslim traditions – Nation of Islam, Sunni Black Muslims, West African businesses, and Latinx Muslims of East Harlem. At New York University’s nationally acclaimed Islamic Center, located in the Village, we will observe the Friday prayer in the context of a campus community integrated with its surrounding professional workforce.
Beyond these two sites in Manhattan, we will venture out to Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx to learn from organizers and advocates of immigration rights and civil liberties, investigate the process of social disappearance of working class Muslims in the face of gentrification, conduct oral histories as paired researchers across the five boroughs, sit with disciples of a female Sufi master and experience the ambiance of their spiritual practice, visit the museums of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art to critically compare natural and cultural representation of Islam and Muslims, take a ferry ride to Elis Island, Statue of Liberty, and compare that immigration narrative with the memories of exclusion curated at the Museum of the Chinese in America, and so much more.
