Targeting Faith, Criminalizing Race

THE INTERSECTION OF ISLAMOPHOBIA AND RACISM IN THE US GOVERNMENT’S SURVEILLANCE OF BLACK MUSLIMS

History 244: Islam in the United States

This course provided a fascinating examination of the growth and evolution of Islam in America, from the early Muslim settlers to the present. The course covers a wide range of themes, such as the historical background of Muslim immigration to America, the obstacles and difficulties Muslims in America confront, and the many cultural and social contributions made by Muslim communities.

Because of my intense interest in history and culture, as well as my desire to comprehend the complexities and subtleties of the Muslim American experience, this course has caught my attention. Due to my ancestors’ immigration as Muslims Pakistan, I feel that this course provided me with a special chance to learn more about how Islam has affected and been influenced by American society.
