There is an increasingly prejudicial connection being made between Blackness & Islam which fuels the erasure of Black Muslims in pop culture. Simply existing at the axis of #BeingBlackandMuslim can be exhausting. You're always not enough. Always having to validate your existence. With my #BeingBlackandMuslim series I want to put a face to the voices of some of the most resilient human-beings in the world. Peace and blessings.
