Hisham Aidi and Safa Samiezade'-Yazd discuss the emergence of a rebellious post-9/11 Muslim youth. Making unexpected connections between urban marginality, music, and political mobilization, Aidi explains how both secular and religiously-fueled movements have been borne as a means of protest against the policies of the “War on Terror," defining a new, youth-led Muslim consciousness and racial identity.
