Black Muslim Narratives Panel at the WGA

The Writers Guild Association Foundation (WGA-F) in partnership with MPAC’s Hollywood Bureau and MuslimARC will be hosting a panel elevating Black Muslim Narratives with Nijla Mu’min (Writer/Director/Producer), Qasim Basir (Screenwriter/Director), Travina Springer (Actor), and additional panelists (TBA).

This panel will challenge the damaging tropes we’ve seen on screen and highlight more authentic, intersectional depictions of Black Muslim identities that are being created by incredibly talented Black Muslim screenwriters. Industry professionals and screenwriters of all backgrounds are welcome.
