Basic Black: On Being Muslim and American

Arts & Culture | Black Boston | Politics

January 15, 2016

Some would argue that it has never been more difficult to be a Muslim in America since September 11. With the ISIS-inspired massacre in San Bernadino and support for Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s call to Muslims from entering the United States, Muslim communities once again find themselves at the center of a heated cultural and political climate. Using Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Ayad Akhtar’s Disgraced (now playing at the Huntington Theatre Company) as a point of departure, Basic Black explores what it means to be a Muslim American.
