Many thanks to you and your wife for your presentation and display! Given the uncertainty of audiences for programs that do not require an RSVP, I was pleased with the number of people we were able to get – almost of all of whom stayed for the entire presentation. I appreciate the ways that you connect with the audience by stepping off stage and moving into their space, as well as the playful non-verbal banter you had with the children in the audience. Your physical presence – throwing your whole body into everything that you do, especially when no words were spoken - also lent much to the performance! And as an educator, I appreciated your use of repetition to help certain facts and words stick in people’s minds. Finally - particularly given the political climate in which we live, and what can appear to be the erasure of Islam and Muslims in early black American experiences - I am so pleased that this performance introduces audiences to a real figure who was intelligent, accomplished, a sympathetic figure, and Muslim.
