Recording of May 2022 Art and the Black Muslim Image Conference

A Zoom discussion on the essays from "Black Muslim Portraiture in the Modern Atlantic", The Muslim World Journal - Special Issue

These conversations focus on five Black art figures of Muslim heritage: (1) Ayuba Suleiman Diallo (2) Yarrow Mamout, (3) Joseph Cinqué (4) Omar Ibn Sayyid and (5) The Bashi-Bazouk. They offer various interpretations, but this is precisely the reason this conversation is so vital. Then there's the fact that these images are all of men and Black people, allowing us to question the male bias and racial assumptions in modern visual culture.

What effect does it have on politics? These questions have received a great deal of attention by scholars of American and European contexts where their contributions have taken on a universalistic overtone. Are these generalized assumptions valid in other societies – notably in Muslim-majority contexts?
