A quarter of Muslims in the United Sates are black. But despite this, Black Muslims are often left out of conversations about Islamophobia. In response, Bobby Rogers, a visual artist based in Minneapolis, released a series of portraits inspired by the Muslim Anti-Racist Collaborative's hashtag conversation #BeingBlackandMuslim. The photographs are a spellbinding example of how art can intersect with activism. They capture how it feels to be a Black Muslim in the U.S.

We would like to invite you to see the art exhibit #BingBlackandMuslim, a portrait series by Bobby Rogers, a visual artist based in Minneapolis. The exhibit, located in the Center for Changing Lives lobby, is part of our series Free to Be Different Together and will be up through March.

The curator, Tricia Heuring will facilitate a conversation with the artist on Wednesday, March 21, 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Come view the exhibit anytime through March, and invite others.
