    Event Description:
    Many people usually think of Muslims as Arabs, where in reality one-third of the Muslims in the US are Black American, one-third are South Asians and one-third are Arabs, making them on of the most diverse religious groups in the country. For this panel, presenters will explore areas where their identities intersect and what it means to be Male or Female, Black & Muslim living in a post 9/11 New England. Through their shared stories religion that preaches the Oneness of God, the Oneness of mankind and the Oneness of the Message and what our towns could be if practitioners were honored in a country whose tenants include freedom of religion for all instead of faced with discrimination.
