Penn Sapelo presents our 2nd Annual Black Muslim History Week where we be celebrating the beauty of Blackness in Islam.
The first event is on Sunday, February 24th where we will be screening the film Jinn and hosting a talkback with UMOJA. In this space, we seek to discuss Islamophobia in the black community and racism and anti-blackness in Muslim communities. Dinner will be served and discussion will be moderated by Brian Peterson.
The second event is on Monday 2/25. The event will have three knowledgable Black Muslims discussing Islam in Black communities. The focus will be on the ways that people in Black communities have used and continue to use Islam as a tool for liberation. Dinner will be served!
The final event is on Wednesday, February 27th, consisting of an interactive workshop that aims to explore and uncover the relationship between Islam and Black History. It will be led by Brother Mustafa Briggs and Brother Youssef Kromah, who have both used formal studies and travel to gain knowledge on Islam in regards to the African continent and the diaspora. Dinner will be served!
