The Muslim Wellness Foundation is seeking proposals for scholarly presentations, interactive workshops, panel discussions, posters, or artistic/creative performances for its fifth annual Black Muslim Psychology Conference. The dialogue at the 2019 Black Muslim Psychology Conference will explore the impact of internalized oppression, notions of Black inferiority and assumptions of Islamic inauthenticity on identity, well-being and development of Black/African Muslims in the United States. Participants will engage in conversation with spiritual leaders and religious scholars, children’s authors, sociologists, psychologists, lawyers, curriculum designers and homeschoolers, anthropologists, educators and principals to wrestle with the question of race and religion in education, scholarship, identity, socialization, and psychological well-being.
The conference will take place July 19-21, 2019. The deadline for proposal submissions is April 1, 2019. For more information on conference registration and proposal submissions, please visit the Black Muslim Psychology Conference webpage.
