Doing Business in Black Neighborhoods

Please join MuslimARC and our partners for "Doing Business in Black Neighborhoods: Anti-Black Racism, Anti-Racism and Muslim Communities"

Muslims often tell the story of Islam’s early spread across cultures as driven by seemingly idyllic encounters through trade. The brutal murder of our brother George Floyd has been a painful reminder that Muslim-run businesses in Black neighborhoods too often become the sites of state violence and racist encounters, even if the business has a mosque in the basement. As Muslim communities mourn and protest this horrific injustice with millions across the country, some Muslims have been embroiled in intra-Muslim community debates about how to assign blame and responsibility and how to define risk, safety, and protection from harm beyond police intervention. This panel will be the first in a series of community conversations sponsored by MuslimARC and its partners on how to heal, build and protect our communities and includes anti-racist Muslim community organizers and activists, business owners, scholars, and religious leaders who live and/or work in Black neighborhoods. and who will offer personal reflections on how to strengthen community ties in this time of crisis.

Confirmed panelists:

  • Imam Makram El-Amin of Masjid An-Nur in Minneapolis, Minnesota
  • Asha Noor, Coordinating Director of Communities United for Status and Protection
  • Margari Hill, Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative and Black Muslim COVID Coalition
  • Rana Elmir Deputy Director Michigan ACLU
  • Zareena Grewal, Ph.D. American Studies Yale University
  • Zuhdi Masri (father of Bassim Masri), Yeatman Market

 

7:00 pm WEDNESDAY, June 3, 2020.
