In the United States, the evolution of a cultural construct involves integrating a myriad of factors including faith (or lack thereof), gender, and national identities. We concentrate on Muslims in America, who represent a hybrid culture with an evolving, unique construct; wherein, two seemingly diametrically opposed paradigms, the secularized democracy of America and the religion of Islam, are merged. Within this group, there is a growing population, either through conversion or birth, of native-born African-American, Euro-American, and Latino-American Muslims, for whom their faith and nationality play significant roles in their cultural make-up. They demonstrate a distinctive, emerging culture that is often miscategorized or simply ignored.
NbA Muslims highlights the heritages, experiences, and cultural productions of native‐born American Muslims of African American, Indigenous, Latinx, and European descent.
