Check out Black Muslims in Canada: Research Interrupted This Thursday

Written by 
Published in News

Research on Black Muslims in Canada is limited and does little to illuminate the diverse communities Black Muslims are a part of.

This report presentation is a culmination of a project collaboration between the Black Muslim Initiative and the Tessellate Institute on the state of research on Black Muslims in Canada - what communities have been identified? How are they written about? Who is doing the writing? Are Black Muslims authors of their own narratives? And finally, what role do oral narratives have in the data that is collected about Black Muslim narratives?

Join us in highlighting the importance of Black Muslim narratives to Black History Month in Canada.

Dr. Fatimah Jackson-Best (Follow her on Twitter) will present her research, followed by a discussion with Hodan A Cashuur (Follow her on Twitter) and Tendisai Cromwell (Follow her on Twitter).

The event will also feature a spoken word performance by Naeema Hassan (Follow her on Instagram).

Date: Thursday, February 7
Time: 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Location: Faculty of Social Work, UofT, 246 Bloor St W, Suite 548

Organized at the University of Toronto with the support of the University of Toronto Somali Students Association.

Chelby Marie Daigle is Muslim Link’s Editor in Chief and Coordinator. Under her direction, Muslim Link adopted its Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Policy so that the website strives to reflect the complexity of Muslim communities in Canada. She knows that she fails to do justice to this complexity every day but she will continue to try to improve as she recognizes the frustration of being both marginalized in the mainstream and also marginalized in Muslim communities. As Coordinator, she works to build relationships with Muslim and mainstream organizations and manages the website's social media, event listings, and directories. She organizes regular Muslim Link gatherings. She also works closely with the Publisher to find ways to keep Muslim Link sustainable. Find her on Twitter @ChelbyDaigle
