This webinar/​virtual gallery talk will focus on the work of Mus­lim stu­dent activists at the Uni­veristy of Michi­gan-Ann Arbor. Anis Rah­man, Jumanah Saadeh, and Zeina Reda will sit down for a con­ver­sa­tion, mod­er­ated by Halal Metrop­o­lis Project Man­ager Asma Baban, on the power of stu­dent activism within the uni­ver­sity sys­tem, the role of stu­dent lead­ers, and the spe­cific cam­paigns that ani­mate their col­lab­o­ra­tions on campus.

The Halal Metrop­o­lis exhi­bi­tion, by artist Osman Khan, pho­tog­ra­pher Razi Jafri, and his­to­rian Sally How­ell, explores the facts, fic­tions, and imag­i­nar­ies of the Mus­lim population(s) in Detroit and South­east Michi­gan as viewed through his­tor­i­cal research, doc­u­men­ta­tion of cur­rent con­di­tions, and explo­rations of future desires. The Halal Metrop­o­lis is one where Mus­lims prac­tice their faith freely and con­tribute to soci­ety with all of their tal­ents and com­mit­ments. It is cre­ated dia­log­i­cally and requires Mus­lims to be vis­i­ble to one another and to non-Mus­lims. It encour­ages Mus­lims to orga­nize and speak as believ­ers, cit­i­zens, and artists.

Stamps events are free and open to the pub­lic, and we are com­mit­ted to mak­ing them acces­si­ble to all atten­dees.
