In Their Footsteps: An American Muslim Civil Rights Journey

February 24 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

In Their Footsteps: An American Muslim Civil RightsJourney” follows some 30 American Muslim civil rights leaders as they journeyed through Alabama in April 2018 to learn about the history of slavery, lynching, segregation, and about present-day racial injustice.

You will hear deeply personal and emotional reflections from American Muslims — including African-American Muslims — who lived through segregation and Jim Crow laws, and for whom the journey brought back memories from their own lives.

During the journey, the Muslim leaders attended the inauguration of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice in Montgomery and learned from experts at the historic 16th Street Baptist Church, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the Civil Rights Memorial. Following the screening, there will be a panel discussion of the film and related topics.
