With the current political climate and the rise of the alt-right, the American Muslim community is once again the focus of much attention. Our beliefs and customs are constantly being questioned and criticized, and although members of the American Muslim Community are consulted on certain issues, Black Muslims are seldom invited to participate in the discussion.

It is time to revisit a series aptly titled “Ask A Muslim.” The original web series, which was produced by the National Black Programming Consortium in 2012, featured Black Muslims from diverse backgrounds and disciplines such as Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Sapelo Square’s Senior Editor Dr. Su’ad Abdul Khabeer.

Watch their episode on Law and Order below and visit the web series homepage to view the entire season.
