Contribute to Sapelo!
We welcome creative contributions that document, analyze and/or celebrate the experience of Black Muslims. We ask potential contributors to send a pitch for their project first. Sapelo Square strives to be inclusive of the dynamic and diverse Black Muslim community. We take a nonsectarian approach to Islam and an inclusive vision of what it means to be Black. As a result, we welcome diverse viewpoints, ideologies and perspectives. Work shared with us for consideration for publication should not isolate, marginalize, or attack others. Further, we seek high-quality material that is informed and thought provoking. Written pieces are typically 1000-1500 words, but we will consider longer pieces as well. We also eagerly welcome audio, video, and visual contributions.
