Armed with humor and a desire to engage in dialogue about Islam, a troupe of four Muslim comedians performed in Georgia, Alabama and Tennessee. Billed as ‘The Muslims are Coming!’ comedy tour, they also set up a “Name that Religion” game in Birmingham, Ala. and an “Ask a Muslim” booth in Lawrenceville, Ga. What they found was often surprising.
What is it like to live under suspicion? That is the question my Washington Post colleague Alexandra Garcia and I attempted to answer in interviews with Muslims and non-Muslims across the United States. Interactive design by the fab Grace Koerber.
