MuslimARC’s 4th Annual #BeingBlackAndMuslim Amplifies Black Muslim Voices


On Tuesday, February 14, 2017, the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) brought back the hashtag that started it all, #BeingBlackAndMuslim, for our 4th annual conversation on Black Muslim identity.

We opened the conversation with framing by Margari Hill, Programming Director of MuslimARC:

Please join us for the 4th annual #BeingBlackAndMuslim HT convo at 2pm EST 2/14/17. We ask that allies signal boost and RT responses by Black Muslims and avoid derailing the conversation by centering the plurality of Black Muslim identities. We have 6 prompts. Please respond to the question number in the following format:

Q.1 [question prompt]
A.1. [your answer #BeingBlackAndMuslim]

These were the six questions for 2017:

  1. What are the effects of 45’s Executive Orders on #BeingBlackAndMuslim?
  2. How can we counter the erasure of #BeingBlackAndMuslim?
  3. What are #BeingBlackAndMuslim led initiatives we should support?
  4. Who are #BeingBlackAndMuslim scholars, activists, leaders, artists, and writers we should follow?
  5. How can allies support #BeingBlackAndMuslim?
  6. Share your images of #BlackJoy about #BeingBlackAndMuslim.
