What lessons can we learn from the story of Black Muslims in the West? What role can Muslims play in questions about race and politics in contemporary North America? How does Islamic sacred law address the question of struggle in the name of racial justice? What is the relationsip between scholarship and activism in contemporary Islamic thought? How do we build bridges of understanding and solidarity with Black Muslims? What is the way forward?
If you've ever wondered about any of the above, then join us for a critical and much needed discussion on race and religion.
