An article written by Rasul Miller in Sapelo Square

About Sapelo Square intervenes in the marginalization and erasure of Black Muslims in the public square by building an online forum that places Black Muslims at the center. Our mission is to celebrate and analyze the experiences of Black Muslims in the United States to create new understandings of who they are, what they have done, and why that matters.

Friends,

Are you ready to run, walk (or just watch) the 2020 Virtual Gaza Run/Walk + Digital Festival?

After the success of our first Pittsburgh “4K4GazaKids” last October we were hoping to expand this year’s walk to a regional event. Unfortunately, the Covid 19 virus has put an end to those plans, but at the same time it has opened up an exciting new opportunity for us.

University of Massachusetts Professor Emeritus Sut Jhally will share select clips and discuss the key findings of his 2016 documentary, "The Occupation of the American Mind," which analyzes pro-Israel public relations efforts within the U.S. Jhally will explore whether the news media have been getting better—or worse—since the documentary was produced, and whether election-season news coverage is likely to cover—or cover up—growing challenges to standard pro-Israel narratives and politics.
