Please join us for our Black History Month Fireside Chat next Thursday, February 25, 2021 at 6pm. We have the honor of hosting Professor Youssef Carter who is the Kenan Rifai Fellow in Islamic Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Our discussion “Fighting for Justice Starts from Within: A Reflection on Racial Justice in Our Communities" will address issues of racial justice on both sides of the Ummah. Professor Carter has graciously shared with us his article, Critiquing Black Muslim Reason. It is heavily encouraged that you read this article prior to attending the fireside chat.
He has taught courses such as African American Islam, Re-introducing Islam, and Ethnicity, Race, and Religion in the United States. His particular research interests are: Sufism & Sufi Movements, Islam in West Africa & United States, Religion in the African Diaspora, Black Atlantic & Decolonial Studies, Anthropology of Religion.
In 2021 CAMBA is committed to elevating Black voices, not only in the Ummah, but in the US at large. One cannot be Muslim in America and refuse to address the issues of racism and inequity. Among other things, we will be discussing race and religion in the United States.
The format will be question and answer moderated by board member Justin Eisele, followed by an opportunity for members to ask their questions.
Registrants will receive a Zoom link the day of the event. Can't wait to see you there!
