As a record-breaking high school star and college athlete, Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir’s life as a basketball player had structure and a clear forward path. Bilqis follows the Quran and has been wearing hijab since the age of fourteen, a practice she extends onto the court as well. Having just come off the best year of her college career at Indiana State, Bilqis began pursuing her goal to play professionally, at which point she was informed that FIBA (the international governing body for the sport) had a rule banning headscarves from international competition. The complex world of being Muslim in America, where family tradition and public perception are often at odds, is front and center in this portrait of an international athlete.
