Freedom School

Registration opens in May

Classes: June 1, 2022 – June 30, 2022

About Freedom School Sapelo Square’s Freedom School was birthed in the summer of 2020 during the age of COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement. The curriculum offers participants the rare opportunity to learn from Black Muslim professors and receive firsthand scholarship that would otherwise be inaccessible. This opportunity empowers individuals with the knowledge and thought leadership that propels students to build power for long term social change and resistance. At the end of each session, students complete a project that bridges the gap between classroom and the real world.

“Dr. Su’ad’s class was dope—huge shout out to her for her dynamic structure! Thank you for expanding our knowledge, challenging our understandings and rooting us in self-love. So much love and gratitude for the full team. JazakAllah kheir (God reward you) and May Allah reward your efforts!”

“I learned so much in Dr. Carter’s class that my mind was swimming with historical info. Why don’t we know this stuff? Alhumdulillah (All praise to God) for Sapelo for freeing our minds with Freedom School.”
