Event Description

In honor of Black History Month, Madina Institute will be showing the Netflix Original Documentary, "13th" followed by a panel discussion with some of our very own community leaders: 

- Imam Mansoor Sabree 

- Imam Furqan Muhammad

- Hasan Clay

- Naaila Clay

According to Fortunate Magazine, the film is:
"Named after the 13th constitutional amendment, which abolished slavery except as "punishment for crime," the doc uses archival footage and expert commentary to make the case that slavery hasn't disappeared from the U.S.—it's evolved into our modern system of mass incarceration, one in which many prisons are run by for-profit companies and prisoners can be paid a pittance to work for corporations."

We invite you to join us as we watch this film together and provide an open and honest learning environment to ask questions and learn more about the issues discussed within the film and ways that you can actually help in the weeks that follow (Stay tuned for details on this as well!)

Film: 4:30-6:15pm
Break for Maghrib
Panel: After Maghrib - 8:00pm
