I Am America: Examining the intersections of Racism and Islamophobia

June 9, 2021 12:00 AM
144 N 6th Street
Louisville, KY 40202 United States
$10 Donation Encouraged

Featuring: Haleh Karimi, Assistant Professor of Management at Bellarmine University

Edward Ahmed Mitchel, Deputy Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

Dr. Muhammad Babar, President of Muslim Americans for Compassion and Muhammad Ali Center Board Member

Islamophobia has long been a part of racism and prejudice within the United States. During this discussion, our panel of experts will explore the intersections of racism and religion specifically through the lens of Muslim Americans. Our panelists will discuss the social implications of persistent Islamophobia in the United States, and the tremendous damage caused to our communities when bigotry and racism toward Muslims remain largely ignored and unaddressed by institutions of influence and power. Our conversation will conclude with opportunities for compassionate action and inclusive community-building within Muhammad’s home city of Louisville, KY, and beyond.

“I believe in the religion of Islam. I believe in Allah and peace” –Muhammad Ali
