On February 14th, Black Muslims of numerous backgrounds took to Twitter for the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative‘s #BeingBlackandMuslim chat.  This was the 4th year of the Twitter chat, which asked participants to answer six questions:

  1. What are the effects of 45’s Executive Orders on #BeingBlackAndMuslim?
  2. How can we counter the erasure of #BeingBlackAndMuslim?
  3. What are #BeingBlackAndMuslim led initiatives we should support?
  4. Who are #BeingBlackAndMuslim scholars, activists, leaders, artists, and writers we should follow?
  5. How can allies support #BeingBlackAndMuslim?
  6. Share your images of #BlackJoy about #BeingBlackAndMuslim.

Black Muslims from across the nation took the opportunity to answer the questions and voice their experiences.

The hashtag trended and drew a slew of racists and Islamaphobes, but who really cares about them?!
