"SUPREME STYLE: FASHION, AESTHETICS, AND THE MAKING OF A BLACK HETERODOX ISLAMIC TRADITION"

Presented by Dr. Siobhan Carter-David, Department of History

Founded in Harlem in 1964, the Nation of Gods and Earths is a heterodox black Islamic faction that is intentionally flexible and individualized in its doctrine. Women members have used the NGE's modest dress code to create an evolving aesthetic that has influenced and been influenced by many facets of post-Civil Rights urban life - black cultural and religious nationalism, African diasporic immigration, hip-hop style, and black feminist politics.
