All the Muslims are Brown, All the Blacks are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave
March 8, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Justice for Muslims Collective Women’s Wellness, and Resistance Network’s celebration of International Women’s day where we will have space for networking, food, and a talk by an incredible scholar, Dr. Nina Daoud.
When we think about global movements that respond to racial and religious injustices, we rarely conjure up an image of the Black Muslim Woman—a figure who is both hyper-visible and invisible due to the intersections of her racial, religious, and gender identities.
Conversations seldom consider women who identify as both Black and Muslim. Learn how Black Muslim women in the U.S. navigate the current social and political context and how recent events in the U.S. shape the way they understand and perform their identities. This talk with Dr. Nina Daoud will address these questions and more, centering women to disrupt narratives of universality among those who identify as Black or Muslim.
Dr. Nina Daoud is a scholar, whose nationally recognized research and work examines the overlapping spheres of race and equity in higher education, focusing on the college experiences of historically underserved students. Among many other areas, her work addresses college experiences of Muslim students in today’s sociopolitical climate.
