Today our brother Boona Muhammad hosted an informative webinar with diverse speakers. Boston's own, Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick, Dr. Donna Auston, and Imam Shadeed Muhammad all spoke about the history, struggles, and overall plight of Black Muslims around the world. It was a much needed dialogue between Black Muslim thinkers, educators, and speakers that provided a platform for a well-rounded response to the #RIS2016 Conference in Toronto, Canada and some of the outrageous and unfortunate statements that came from Zaytuna College's, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, a few weeks back.
If you weren't able to catch the live webinar, check out the recorded event on Youtube and come back and leave some comments for me. I'd love to hear what y'all thought of the dialogue. Next month, I will be sharing my own commentary on the program and some other Black Muslims Matters that need to be addressed in education, community, and women's issues.
