The City of Baltimore faced a period of unprecedented unrest last spring following the death of Freddie Gray. What role can the museum play in the contemporary conversation about race and diversity? This panel discussion, moderated by Homayra Ziad, scholar of Islam at the Institute for Christian & Jewish Studies, opens an important conversation about the intersection of race and the public discourse on Islam and Muslims. Why are black and Latino Muslim communities largely ignored or silenced in cultural conversations about Islam? The panel includes Baltimore-based scholar Harold Morales from Morgan State University and enterpreneur Saafir Rabb from Interculture.
