Literary Salon

An intimate gathering that uses the written word to bear witness to the life experiences of Black Muslim women.

Our gatherings aim to showcase and unearth stories that animate how we are seen and see ourselves in our families, our communities, and society to help us better know ourselves and identify ways to nourish one another.

Our conversations give voice to our psychological, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing to help us better know ourselves and enable us to be better stewards of ourselves and the communities in which we are situated.

An important aspect of trauma healing that is often overlookedis the final mile: reintegration and reconstruction of identity.

I was searching for a civillian and
non-professional spaces free from racial prejudice that can promote a healthy reconstruction of self and sense of belonging. This is the only space I found.
