Being Black and Muslim Twitter Talk

2/12/14 at 1 pm EST, Black History #Twittertalk kicked off with #beingblackandMuslim.


  1. Update: 2/12/14 10:00 pm : After @dawudwalid's one man campaign against anti-Black racial slurs amongst Muslims, a number of Muslims from all stripes began to think of ways of addressing entrenched racism. An email group formed, largely Muslims of South Asian and Arab persuasion, wanted to challenge anti-racism in their own communities. They brainstormed about a HT campaign. But it was a brilliant Black muslimah, @_faizaa who came up with the HT #BeingBlackAndMuslim. I apologize for not giving you credit for helping us kick start an amazing campaign that helped amplify the voice of Black Muslims all over the globe.
