A Muslim Scene: Film, Taste, Style of Muslims in Durham
Durham 150 Grantee
We’re inviting people of all belief systems to take a peek into Muslim Life in Durham. We will be premiering a rough cut of a short film by documentarian, Grace Beeler. This film features 2 members of our own masjid, with a look into their transition in Durham as female immigrants from Congo.
Our goal is to have a majority of the attendance as non-Muslims or people of other belief systems.
After 2 showings of the film we will have a discussion panel to jumpstart a conversation about some of the ideals presented in the film along with other topics about Muslims in Durham.
This Muslim scene will also include delicious tastes of foods from different Muslim cultures in Durham.
Please also enjoy the mini exhibits we will have featuring things like the cultural dress and style of Muslims like the hijab and veils, and daily tools of Muslims like the Qu’ran, prayer rug, and dhikr beads.
Edutainment at its best on this lovely Sunday evening, so please join us to celebrate and discuss this interesting and vast community in Durham!
This program is hosted by the Sisters Committee of Jamaat Ibad Ar Rahman (JIAR Sisters) and proudly sponsored by Durham 150, the city’s year-long celebration of its 150th birthday.
