Duke Performances and Duke Islamic Studies Center’s Building Bridges: Muslims in America series

Part of Duke Performances' Building Bridges: Muslims in America series, the celebration will also include a free public panel discussion and an introduction to 'Moonchild,' a documentary film in production about Salim's life by Durham filmmaker Kenny Dalsheimer. The conversation will touch upon Brother Yusuf's lifelong musical and spiritual journey, including his embrace of Islam as a means of fostering peace, love, and unity - and his approach to building a community in which music could serve as a force for lasting connection and transformation.
