Halal If You Hear Me

March 9, 6:30-8:30 PM
Halal If You Hear Me
Hosted by Young Chicago Authors and Louder than A Bomb 2017
Open Mic and Salon

Halal If You Hear Me is a forthcoming anthology of writings by Muslims who are women, queer, genderqueer, nonbinary, or trans. Join us for an evening of poetry and performance by Muslim artists celebrating intersectional identity and dispelling the notion that there is only one way to be muslim. This event is co-hosted by the Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) and Young Chicago Authors as part of the 2017 Louder Than A Bomb Youth Poetry Festival. JAHMM presents this program in collaboration with the Muslim American Leadership Alliance and the UIC Arab American Cultural Center.  Sign-up for the Open Mic starts at 6:30pm. Free. Limited seating available.
