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.
