Dr. Mu'min Rashad will speak about how and why race and religion matter as American communities have grappled with COVID-19. While media has focused on the disproportionate impact on Black and Latino communities, there is less attention on how religious identity is shaping community experiences of and responses to COVID-19. Dr. Rashad will discuss the experience of Black Muslims and share the results of the National Black COVID Survey Project.
