Since our first call to justice in 2014, MuslimARC has worked to research, convene, and organize to address the intersections of racism and anti-Muslim bias/Islamophobia. When the founders of MuslimARC saw a tendency within Muslim communities to accept the criminalization of Black people, we worked to counter those narratives through agitation and education. We are excited to offer new frameworks that help interrupt patterns of internalized racial inferiority or superiority in a racial regime where anti-Blackness is the fulcrum of white supremacy.
In this two-hour interactive workshop, we will build upon Islam’s anti-racist ethos, and consider the 1400 years of Islamic history to root today’s work in the historical role of Black Muslims in the US and transnational movement. Join us to become inspired to a deeper commitment to center Black Muslims in our efforts towards addressing Islamophobia and racism.
In this workshop participants will:
- Have a better understanding of the framework “anti-Blackness is the fulcrum of white supremacy”
- Explore the three foundational logics of white supremacy through historical text and present-day manifestations
- Map out white dominant culture narratives and how they undermine solidarity
- Brainstorm action steps to address anti-Blackness and internalized racism to work towards collective liberation
The session will be avaiable in person or live on zoom. You can choose either option when purchasing a ticket.
