“O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.” (Quran 49:13)
There is an incredible legacy of Black Muslims in America whom we can all learn from and reflect on at any point in the year. We have over four centuries worth of history in America, but how many of us are able to name more than three influential Black Muslims in American history? Through much needed educational initiatives at our masjids, Muslim Student Associations, general community gatherings, and more, we can all work together to create a more supportive network that bridges us together.
At LaunchGood, we are committed to uplifting the empowering work of organizations across the United States that are challenging our local Muslim communities with educational justice work, addressing anti-Black racism, and building masjids and hospitals abroad.
