A big thank you to Taleef Collective for hosting me and everyone who came out Sunday night to hear me speak about “Re-Made Men.” I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to contribute my voice in a panel discussion about incarceration, reentry and Islam moderated by Usama Canon. The conversation about new Muslims coming home from prison is a topic that has become very close to me in my 5 years of research and production of my film.
After the panel, Hajj Usama put me on the spot to share some bboying skills in the adjacent room. I ended up having an impromptu cypher with spoken word artist and writer Mark Gonzales which I thought turned out really dope.
