There is so much buzz in the Muslim community right now between #hashtag activism and the emergence of several vibrant online communities.

We want to introduce you to some digital conversations that which we feel are taking the narrative of Islamic identity and Muslim experience to a new level (even to offline potential). is the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative that highlights issues of race (and its construction) within the Muslim community by focusing on education, outreach, and advocacy. In February, MuslimARC sponsored Twitter discussions on

 #BeingBlackAndMuslim#UmmahAntiBlackness#BlackMuslimFuture, and #DropTheAWord.

The Wednesday, April 2nd Twitter campaign celebrated MENA identities (Middle East North African) and May will focus on Asian heritage.  Although MuslimARC seeks to go beyond social media organizing, their efforts embrace postcolonial online activism in exciting ways.

MuslimARC is using social media to decolonize and recontextualize the concept of race and identity among Muslims.

We absolutely love that. Visit them on TwitterFacebook, and Tumblr.


The Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) is a volunteer-driven education organization. We are building and collecting the tools needed to creatively address and effectively challenge anti-blackness and racism in Muslim communities.

And of His signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed in that are signs for those of knowledge. [30:22]
