The Black Muslim identity is often put off in discussions of blackness in the U.S. even though the emergence of Islam in the United States is largely due to Black Muslims. The Divine 9–which is made up of several organizations that were founded on Christian principles—remains integral to the black college experience. These organizations’ engagement with Black Muslim students has larger implications regarding Black student life and religious tolerance. Join us in opening dialogue on the diversity of religion in black collegiate spaces as we invite Muslim greeks to discuss their experiences in their respective organizations, the role of religious affiliations of Black Greek Letter Organizations, and their experiences in student activism and other Black student organizations.
