More Pictures:  The Civil Rights Movement and the Black Liberation Struggle 2015/1436


Ms. Soumaya Khalifa, Executive Director and founder of the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta, will be the moderator of this event; joining her will be Ms. Saffiyah Shahid, Former Director and Principal of Mohammed Schools of Atlanta; Imam Plemon El-Amin, Imam Emeritus of the Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam, one of the largest and most progressive mosques in the U.S.; and, Dr. Gerald Durley a veteran of the civil rights movement and former pastor of the historic Providence Missionary Baptist Church in Atlanta.
Our distinguished panel will discuss the often overlooked and understated relationship between the Civil Rights Movement and the Black Liberation Struggle, and the Muslim influences and involvements within each. They will examine and explore the philosophical, cultural, and programmatic impact derived from Muslim leaders, writers, and activists, as well as the Islamic connections to the anti-colonial, Pan-African, and international liberation movements of that era. Our featured panelists will also consider the possible influences, challenges, and opportunities of that legacy within today's global polemics.

2015 Building Bridges Awardee:  
The National Center for Civil and Human Rights
The Center for Civil and Human Rights has been named Atlanta's #1 Museum by USAToday. The Center was first imagined by civil rights legends Evelyn Lowery and former United Nations Ambassador Andrew Young and was launched by former Mayor Shirley Franklin. It is one of the few places in the world educating visitors on the bridge between the American Civil Rights Movement and contemporary Human Rights Movements around the world.  
The Islamic Speakers Bureau was proud to be part of The National Center for Civil and Human Rights's inaugural event. In September 2015, the ISB  held a panel discussion titled Muslim Influences: Civil Rights and Black Liberation Movementsin which the panelists discussed their personal experiences growing up in a racially divided country, the impact of the Black Liberation struggle and the influence of  influence women on the Civil Rights movement. The Center hosted the 150 Concordia Forum delegates on October 11.   
 
Join us as we celebrate the National Center for Civil and Human Rights at the ISB Gala on November 14. For more information on our gala and to purchase tickets, please click here.
