On Being Muslim in the Deep North

Muslum Tea Talk

Sunday, March 12, 2017, 2-4pm, Elinor Hooker Williams Tea Talk – Join Us!

Free and open to the public

Many people usually think of Muslims as Arabs, where in reality one-third of the Muslims in the US are Black American, one-third are South Asians and one-third are Arabs, making them one of the most diverse religious groups in the country.

For this panel, presenters will explore areas where their identities intersect and what it means to be Male or Female, Black & Muslim living in a post 9/11 New England. Through their shared stories we will gain an understanding of what it means to be part of a religion that preaches the “Oneness of God, the Oneness of mankind and the Oneness of the Message” and what our towns could be if practitioners were honored in a country whose tenants include freedom of religion for all instead of faced with discrimination.

Presenters

Rashida Mohamed, Robert Azzi, Pious Ali, Samaa Abdurraqib

The Portsmouth Historical Society museum shop is also open 1 to 5pm when Tea Talks are scheduled.

In case of inclement weather, cancelled Tea Talks will be rescheduled for Sunday, March 19 and/or Sunday, March 26.
