Curated by Dr. Su’ad Abdul Khabeer, Umi’s Archive is truly an act of love. Drawing on the remarkable life of her mother, Amina Amatul Haqq, Dr. Su’ad hasn’t just given us an insight into one person’s experience of being Black and Muslim, but has given us access to the vibrant, transformational, and radical contours of Islam as shaped, nurtured and loved by African-American Muslims and the communities that surrounded them. “Umi,” she writes, “was a creative and loving person and Umi's Archive is also a dream space and a labor of love - love for Umi, of course, and love for what she loved: her peoples, knowledge, justice, and liberation.”

As the online exhibition draws to a close, Listening While Muslim joins Dr. Su’ad Abdul Khabeer to celebrate by listening to the music which was the soundtrack of Umi’s life and the communities to which she dedicated her life. On the anniversary of Umi’s return home (may God grant her joy everlasting), Dr. Su’ad will guide us to listen as Umi did – and be inspired. As Dr. Su’ad says, “I offer Umi's Archive as a space where we can imagine those things are possible.” Join us as we listen and imagine.

This event is co-sponsored by the Arab and Muslim American Studies program.
