Speaker Spotlight: Mustafa Davis

Mustafa Davis is a Muslim American filmmaker and photographer whose diverse portfolio addresses, among other things, issues of contemporary Muslim American identity.

Davis’ film DeenTight “reaches down to a deep place in the Islamic discourse” to examine the powerful role that hip-hop plays among Muslims Americans and especially within the African American Muslim community.

The film engages complicated issues of identity formation and the emergence of a uniquely American expression of Islam.
