Black Lives Matter @AFA - Virtual Event June 6, 2020
We were so blessed to have time with Tariq Touré and Imam Mohamed Hag Magid to speak about what we - especially young people in our community - can do to engage our hearts, minds, and actions for justice and equality. Privilege, being anti-racist, and monitoring ourselves at home and in interactions came up - with the urgency to captain ourselves in these rough waters and be true stewards of what Allah has given us in each other.
This followed conversations during the day with Middle Schoolers who heard from beloved former AFA teacher Kareema Dickens - she shared her experience as a Black Muslim woman in America. Her stories and reflection truly opened our hearts and minds to centering lived realities in our own perspectives and perceptions. #BlackLivesMatter
