The chapter locates contemporary Islam in the United States as part of a culture of pluralism by detailing the findings of filmmaker Bassam Tariq and comedian/performer Aman Ali during their cross-country travel project titled 30 Mosques in 30 Days. It also examines the depiction of American pluralism in the work of artist Sandow Birk, who illustrated an English-language Qur’an with scenes from current American life.
