Puerto Ricans (Re)examining and (Re)imagining Their Identities through Islam and Hip Hop

Islam and the Americas

Omar Ramadan-Santiago

University Press of Florida

Ramadan-Santiago discusses the ways some Puerto Rican Muslims claim membership in the global Hip Hop and Islamic communities where they have not historically been centrally positioned. They understand and validate their place in these communities by marshalling historico-cultural evidence that authenticates and legitimates their membership claims. The author pays particular attention to the synthesis by which Puerto Rican Muslims re-imagine and re-create their identities simultaneously as Puerto Ricans, Muslims, and Hip Hop artists.
