Abstract

Abstract:

This essay explores "Islamophobia" through actor Mahershala Ali. I focus on Ali's 2017 awards and their audience reception, especially in Pakistan. Ali frames an analysis of the mediation of Black American Ahmadi Muslim identity within national conditions of anti-Muslim animus, the illegibility of Black Muslimness, and global debates about Muslim "orthodoxy."
