The convening will also provide an informative discourse on the challenges and future initiatives of Black Muslim, Muslim and non-Muslim authors within the writing community and the importance of maintaining developing narratives at the intersections of race, faith, and national identity to resist biases stemming from prevailing stereotypes.

There will be panel discussions, book readings by authors of varying social backgrounds, and vendor opportunities.

Non-Black Authors, educators, students, and community members will be welcomed attendees and participants.
