This course examines the realities and experiences of Muslims in America, beginning with the trans-Atlantic slave trade and into the contemporary political situation. We will discuss various Muslim American communities, including women, immigrants, African-American 'indigenous' Muslims, and 'transnationals,' considering their specific realities in America. We will also consider the status of Muslim-Americans' civil rights, and their many responses to political racism, particularly but not exclusively in the aftermath of September 11th, 2001.
