Senegal began its “Large Infrastructure Projects” in early 2000. Through this economic development plan, the State sought to build a modern nation capable of attracting foreign investment and tourists. In the process, it brutally displaced many informal workers. In this talk, I trace the trajectories of some of these informal workers from Senegal to Brazil, a lesser-known destination for French-speaking West African migrants. Drawing on twenty-one months of archival research and participant observation, I offer an ethnographic exploration of everyday life among young Senegalese followers of the Muridiyya Sufi order (the Murids) in three Brazilian state capitals: Rio de Janeiro, Porto Alegre, and São Paulo. I show how these African Sufi Muslim migrants adjust their professional skills and religious rituals to strategically bring Islam into the Brazilian public sphere amidst a global climate of Islamophobia and the rise of right-wing politicians. I also highlight the dilemmas these young Black Muslims grapple with as they seek to live an ethical life under capitalism and against Brazil’s racial politics.
