Black Muslim and Faith Community To Fight Racism in US

SHAFAQNA – According to HuffPost reported that  ” Many Muslim American activists consider social justice work to be a fundamental tenet of their faith — but the community’s cohesion on this front occasionally breaks down along racial lines.Things are beginning to change, however, as black Muslim leaders work to raise the issues of racism and police brutality in the broader Muslim community, reminding Muslims of all backgrounds of the moral imperative to speak out against injustice.” Report added ” Racism has affected the black Muslim community for generations. America’s first Muslims were brought to the country as slaves, as historian Peter Manseau described in a recent HuffPost blog, and scholars now believe roughly 20 percent of enslaved Africans in the United States were Muslims.”
