Adama Bah recounts her experiences as a young Muslim woman of color living in post-9/11 New York. At sixteen, the FBI arrested her and her father without warning or much explanation, and Adama learned that she was not an American citizen. She was separated from her father and taken to a detention center where she was held for six weeks, harassed and humiliated on a daily basis. She was falsely accused of terrorism and of volunteering to be a suicide bomber-without any concrete evidence against her.
