New York Ramadan: Muslim Life on the Lower East Side

May 16 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Tenement Museum

Thursday May 16 at 6:30pm

Free, RSVP Required

The Lower East Side is an iconic neighborhood associated with many immigrant and migrant communities, as well as cultural movements. It is, however, rarely thought of in the context of the Muslim community who have called the neighborhood home over time. May is Lower East Side History Month, and this Tenement Talk in partnership with the Muslims for American Progress, will explore the diversity of the Muslim communities on the LES.

Panelists Include:
Abeda Khanam, educator, community leader, grew up on Orchard St
Rashidah Ismaili, poet, Benin-immigrant who lived on the LES during the Black Arts Movement
Ali Abbas, writer and filmmaker
