West African Muslim Slaves and Islam in Antebellum New Orleans

featuring Professor Richard Brent Turner

Date: Monday, September 18, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Building: Woldenberg Art Center, Freeman Auditorium

Islam is one of the important religious traditions for understanding the dynamic interactions between empires, cultures, and racial identities in New Orleans and the Gulf South, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Dr. Turner’s talk will explore the history and socio-political experiences of the urban and literate West African Muslims who were brought to New Orleans during the era that spanned trans-Atlantic slavery, and he will look at their impact on black internationalism and the rich musical culture of the city. The epilogue of the talk will discuss scholarly perspectives for the study of Islam in New Orleans in the twenty-first century and beyond.
