Faith in Action: Race, Religion, and Politics
NWMI proudly organized a three-part social justice series on the intersection of Islam, race, and Black Lives Matter (BLM), from 2016-2018.
With the help of expert panelists, we remembered the legacy of Imam Hussain (as) — who put faith into action to stand against the brutality, intolerance, and hypocrisy of his time — and drew parallels with our own modern-day struggles. We asked ourselves: How do we regard BLM among contemporary social justice issues? Have we examined our own implicit biases? Can we take a genuine stand against injustices toward our Black brothers and sisters?
