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 conference will feature Mustafa Davis’ most recent film, Wayward Son – The Jordan Richter Story, a documentary focusing on professional skateboarder and convert to Islam Jordan Richter. The film engages complicated issues of identity formation and the emergence of a uniquely American expression of Islam.
