This Introspective #BeingBlackandMuslim Inspired Photo-Series Is Incredible

Visual Artist Bobby Rogers is the visionary behind this culturally important series. “There is an increasingly prejudicial connection being made between Blackness and Islam which fuels the erasure of Black Muslims in pop culture” are the sentiments Bobby Rogers  stated post introducing his series. There’s no doubt that folks falling on the axis of Blackness and Islam are often erased from narratives— even narratives centering their very existence. In the series, Bobby compiles vibrant portraits of people falling on the intersection of Blackness and Islam with personal quotes by the respective muses.
