BeingBlackandMuslim

For the past few months I've been creating a portrait series inspired by the #BeingBlackandMuslim hashtag. I'm ready to share it with ya'll.

There is an increasingly prejudicial connection being made between Blackness & Islam which fuels the erasure of Black Muslims in pop culture

Simply existing at the axis of #BeingBlackandMuslim can be exhausting. You’re always not enough. Always having to validate your existence.

With my #BeingBlackandMuslim series I want to put a face to the voices of some of the most resilient human-beings in the world.
