    | David Felix Sutcliffe

    This is not my story, but the story of Adama Bah, an incredible and brave young Muslim woman I met six years ago at an afterschool arts program in Harlem where I was a video teacher. Two months prior to our meeting, Adama woke up just before dawn on March 24th, 2005 to find nearly a dozen government officials in her family's East Harlem apartment. She was arrested and…
