How Does It Feel to  be a Problem?  Being Young and Arab in America


Funded by the Cottonwood Foundation



Prof. Moustafa Bayoumi

Brooklyn College



Bayoumi’s work, How Does It Feel to Be a Problem?: Being Young and Arab in America, traces the experiences of seven young Arab-Americans navigating life in a post–September 11 environment, where complicated public perceptions of the attacks gave birth to new brands of stereotypes, fueling widespread discrimination. It is the story of how young Arab and Muslim Americans are forging lives for themselves in a country that often mistakes them for the enemy.
