In light of the recent escalation in hate crimes against Muslim veiled women (Hijabis) following the 2016 Presidential Election, we will be holding an event called “Hijabi Monologues: Halfway Hijabi.” The event begins with a short teach-in, followed by student monologues. This is an indispensable opportunity to learn about the hijab - its history and its modernity - as well as to provide a safe space for Hijabis to share their unheard stories, poems, art, etc. with a compassionate audience. The event will be held from 7:00-9:00 pm on February 3rd, 2017 at the Amphitheater Auditorium in Rackham, and we cordially invite you and your colleagues to attend.
BLI fellow Alyiah Al-Bonijim was awarded a Small Grant in support of this significant event.
