Event title: We're Muslims Don't Panic
Description:

American Muslim, Amirah Sackett hip hop dancerAmerican Muslim, Amirah Sackett hip hop dancer on stageRCC’s Diversity Programming Board (DPB) is hosting an internationally-recognized hip-hop dancer, choreographer, teacher and American Muslim, Amirah Sackett, for two days in April.

Sackett has been honored as one of the first female hip-hop artists to receive the Jerome Travel/Study Grant, which provides her with an opportunity to travel to Holland to study and train at Hip Hop Huis -- a center in Europe for hip-hop artists. Her hope is to change common stereotypes about Muslim women through her work.

Sackett started with two other dancers, Iman and Khadijah and the trio became known as, “We’re Muslims, Don’t Panic.” The group purposed to educate people about hijabs (a Muslim style of dress) and to increase an understanding and tolerance for Muslim women in the nation’s cities and schools. They were featured in a music video produced by rapper, Brother Ali called "Mourning in America." Based on that performance, “We’re Muslims . . .” were honored with the prestigious Sage Cowles Award for “Best Ensemble Performance.” In the past year, Sackett’s performance has reached viral video fame with millions of views in multiple programs. She was invited to perform and lecture at Harvard University and the Huffington Post featured Sackett in an article titled "17 Muslim American Women Who Made America Great in 2016". She believes the “hip-hop culture gives a voice to those often unheard and is a way to uplift, inspire, and bring change to those communities that need it the most.
