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.

The social unrest that followed George Floyd’s cruel murder generated much-needed call outs, discussions, and reflections. In June, the full-time Theatre faculty sent a letter titled “Working Towards Racial Justice in the Theater Department” addressing these and stating our commitment to an anti-racist department. We hope you had an opportunity to read and reflect on it.
As promised, the first event with students is the Town Hall Listening Session on September 10 at 4:00pm to center students’ thoughts, questions, and feelings and a working session to collectively come up with the next steps of a plan.
