Episode 26: Black + Muslim: Dealing with AntiBlackness + Islamophobia with Ida McRae

On this podcast we connect with Ida McRae who identifies as a Black Muslim woman and parent  on what it means to be Black and Muslim. With the heightened violence against Muslim communities from the New Zealand attack in Christchurch that left over 50 dead and 50 more injured and with the increased repressive policies such as the Muslim travel ban initiated by the Trump administration. Oftentimes we don’t hear the experiences of Black Muslims, so we are honored to talk with  Ida who is parenting a powerful Black muslim daughter. Ida is a social worker who strives to support the social and emotional wellbeing of her community and she does a lot of work to destigmatize mental health for communities of color and Muslim families.
