As the Veil Turns

Through photography, video, and oral history Nsenga Knight explores the spiritual and community lives of Black women who converted to Islam prior to 1975 and pioneered Brooklyn’s oldest Muslim communities. As an interactive project, As the Veil Turns grants its viewers access to the layered and historical, first hand accounts of these pioneering women. All photos from the As the Veil Turns series are available here.
