In-Visibility: Black Muslim Women in the Arts

December 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Event Navigation

For Black Muslim women living in the U.S., navigating the arts comes with several caveats. From tokenism to erasure, swerving on anti-Blackness, Islamophobia or sexism, is practically a given if you’re Black, Muslim and a woman in the arts.

Join us for a robust panel discussion centering the voices of such individuals. These local creatives will share their unique perspectives and reflections surrounding their relationship to the arts.

PANELIST
Maya Beck
Fatuma Mohamud
Lula Saleh
Vanessa Taylor
Hawwa Youngmark

Emceed by Filsan Ibrahim

Special Musical Performance by Yaba Gobana

Hosted by Sagirah Shahid, co-sponsored by the East Side Freedom Library. Funded in part by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an artist initiative grant.

This event is free and open to the public, cash donations of $5-$20 accepted at the door.
